Oxjam is Oxfam’s answer to Live Aid. Volunteers from across the UK put on music events in their local area, raising money to combat the world-wide poverty crisis. Verity Harris, Jamie Alexander and Jaime Ashton, Music Management and Artist Development students, decided that they wanted to join the cohort of people across the country raising money for Oxfam by putting on their very own Bucks Oxjam.
