The Oxford Foundation has set up the Oxfordshire Community Hub as a response to Covid-19 to create a virtual Oxfordshire community. This is to get all people in Oxfordshire to join in, share how they are feeling, share a reflection, a thought, a poem, a song, just literally anything, as long as it is respectful towards each other. We want to create a sustained positive, uplifting and joyous message. Keep safe, keep well.
