Meet Oxfam Greenwich
The 6 members of Oxfam Greenwich came together in 2015 to make a difference. Sara, Gemma, Brayan, Nikki, JiaJia and Myngoc recently put on their first event with The Tiffinians, an a capella group, which raised an amazing £367.
Group member Myngoc Tien says:
"I've always wanted to give back to the community and help those in need...but running marathons was just not for me!! So here I am as a member of the Oxfam Greenwich Fundraising Group, not breaking a physical sweat but still raising money for Oxfam.
When I joined I worried that I wouldn't have enough time for volunteering, but now I can't help but make Oxfam part of my weekly routine. My team and I are always thinking of what event to hold next and what to post on social media... the thinking never ends when you are having so much fun.
I would definitely recommend volunteering to anyone who can spare an evening or so per week (as it does involve commitment in order to do a good job). Anyone who is open for challenge, enjoys creative thinking and lastly, meeting a bunch of great people as I have with my team. This is a brief story of my experience... Why don't you go and find yours with Oxfam."
