World Cup-winning England rugby player Matt Dawson and British Olympic gold medal rower Greg Searle joined staff from 22 businesses for a sporting challenge yesterday.
Staff from firms including Blackwell’s, Bicester Village and Sainsbury’s took part in a series of activities at Iffley Road running track, including archery, shot-put and the 1,500 metres, to raise money for charities.
High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Tony Stratton organised the event to raise around £120,000 for Music for Autism, Access Sport and the Oxfordshire Community Foundation.
More than 100 staff took part in the challenge and Mr Dawson said: “This all stems from Tony’s passion for sport.”
