Finalists announced for the Local Business Charity Awards (Oxfordshire)

It’s time for the Local Business Charity Awards 2018.

The awards recognise the support given to Oxfordshire charities by businesses in the county. Jelf helped to establish these awards in 2014 originally in Gloucestershire, and we’ve supported them ever since, watching them grow bigger every year. And this year we’re co-sponsoring the awards with A-Plan.

We’re delighted to announce the finalists and the charities who nominated them for 2018 Local Business Charity Awards (Oxfordshire).
