While stuck at home, our OB Footballers have decided to use the time to run, cycle or walk from Bradfield to Istanbul by the original date of the Champions League final on the 30th May, a distance of around 1850 miles! They are doing so to raise money for the Ruth Strauss Foundation which funds research and support for those suffering lung cancer. If you would like to find out more, or support them, please follow this link to their fundraising page here.

For anyone who has made a donation to the Ruth Strauss Foundation in aid of our #bradfield2istanbul challenge there's a chance to rub virtual shoulders with one of England’s greatest batsman, ex captain of our national team, World Cup winner and winner of multiple Ashes series Andrew Strauss.

Those who want to donate £50 or more will be sent free beer and pizzas on the night courtesy of the foundation. Tickets available for any donator. Please send an email to to claim your ticket.

Thanks to those that have already donated.
