Round-table discussion on childhood malnutrition

Back in November 2021 we hosted a round-table discussion in partnership with University of Oxford, lead by Dr Shobi Nagraj. Learnings from the workshop have been shared nationally and feature in Gordon Brown's blog, as well as in Complete Nutrition Journal. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this work.

Events at Barrack's Lane Community Garden

The Botley Bikers are looking for new volunteers - could this be you?  

  • Do you like to cycle?
  • Are you over 18?
  • Would you like to help people experiencing homelessness?
The Botley Bikers deliver food, toiletries and good cheer by bicycle to people experiencing homelessness and vulnerable housing in Oxford.  We need volunteers for our Thursday afternoon runs.  Join us in West Oxford at 4 pm, pack the bikes, cycle in a group around a regular route, and finish at St. Giles by 6 pm.  We provide the food, and can provide panniers, trailers, even bikes.  We just need adult volunteers with a robust sense of humour and sturdy(ish) legs.

Interested?  Email Rachael or call 07951 858162.
