An Upper Heyford roller derby side are holding a fundraiser on Saturday, July 21.

The Oxford Wheels of Gory Roller Derby League team will be hosting an action-packed night at the sports hall in Upper Heyford starting at 6pm.

Spokesman Jane Cameron said: “We desperately need our event to be a success so we can pay for venue hire, insurance, team kit and uniforms and hopefully soon to host home, open to the public, bouts and tournaments which are costly.”

The club are also on the lookout for female skaters over the age of 18 as well as men for referees and non-skating officials.

Cameron added: “We offer women a positive way to keep fit and build their confidence while having so much fun!”

The club have their own facebook page and you can also email
