The 2016 Oxfam Stomp blew the roof off The Kings Heath Cricket & Sports Club to raise funds for Oxfam. January’s concert donations raised over £1900!
A traditional jazz event, Oxfam Stomp features four different bands who donate their time. A jam session runs concurrently so musicians and jazz singers can collaborate.
The bands included George Huxley’s All Stars, Jazz Salon Rouge, New Georgia Jazz Band, and The Sopranos. The organizers included Mr. Jim Denham and Mr. Terry McGrath, along with the wonderful Polly.
Shop Manager Ladi Dell’aira said, “Together we can end poverty for good. Bringing our community together to enjoy the rich musical life of Kings Heath is just one way to do that.”
This year’s donation went to Oxfam’s general fund, allowing the flexibility to use the donation wherever it is most needed. From women’s rights to water, earthquakes to education, Oxfam does life-changing, ground-breaking work in all sorts of areas.
