December 2009 Christmas Party Fundraising: The Filipino Community of Oxfordshire decided not to hold a Christmas Party in 2009.  Instead we sang carols to raise donations to help victims of the typhoons in the Philippines.  A total of £270.00 was raised.  Our sincere and grateful thanks for your generous donations.
