Oxford club records top donation

The Oxford Philatelic Society, based in Woodstock, Ont., has set a new record for its annual cancer fundraiser despite COVID-19 putting a pause on regular meetings and other club events in 2021.

This November, Henny Uyl, the club’s president, presented a cheque to Hailey Parliament, a donor communications specialist with the Canadian Cancer Society, for $1,777. It was the club’s largest donation, topping last year’s cheque for $1,024.65.

The club regularly raises money through stamp sales and donations.
