New Oxford Update:

Donnelly Group & Bomber Brewing Deliveries & Discounts*
New Oxford Staff "Thank You" Fund

It has been a while since I have been in touch. Firstly, I wish everyone and your families well in these difficult times.

For those of us who have been lucky enough to have kept our jobs and are in a position to help those that have been less fortunate, please read on.

Chelsea New Oxford Staff Gratuity Fund.
With the New Oxford closed until we can gather there again, the staff who have looked after us so well have been laid-off. The Donnelly Group really had no choice given that they had to close the pub to keep everyone safe. Hopefully the staff are now getting E.I., although being a job that relied on tips, they are clearly a lot worse off.
I’ve had chats with Donnelly Group’s top management and I’m pleased to say that they plan to welcome us back to “our house in the middle of Homer Street” as soon as they are allowed to do so, and to make the experience of watching matches there even better than before. They, like us, are hopefully that many of the staff we know will return too.
Meanwhile they are giving us discounts on liquor deliveries while we watch re-runs of matches at home! You can order food from them as well. Details below.

We would like to help the team of bar staff, servers and chefs that have looked after us. Your supporters club will start to pay money into a “gratuity fund” for the New Oxford staff team. Here’s the plan:
We will donate $1,000 of our membership fees into the fund to get it going.
That will be matched by at least a $1,000 from donations pledged anonymously by Club members.
* Every time you order liquor or food from Donnelly or Bomber Brewing we will add a 15% tip to the fund. Just let me know what you spent and the club will make the 15% donation on your behalf.
* If you’d like to add your own tip to it you can do so via our PayPal account and I’ll add your donation to the fund as well.
* If you’d just like to add a donation to the fund, then please do so using the “Donate” button above.

Or if you prefer to donate by cash or cheque, just let me know.

We will distribute the fund to the staff as a welcome back “thank you” when we and they return to the New Oxford - we’ll definitely be ready for a party! If the shutdown continues for many months then we can use gift cards to say thanks to the staff while they remain unemployed.

* Here are the details of the services and discounts the Donnelly Group are offering us:
