From the Manager

NigerThank you to our supporters for a banner year of funds raised through shop sales and direct donations! You’ve helped communities across the globe  with Oxfam’s ongoing programmes and addressed crises in Nepal,  South Sudan, Syria, and throughout Refugee communities.

As 2015 draws to a close, we’ve got a full slate of upcoming events:

  • A chance to live tweet #withOxfam from our book and music shop, and to write include your name on our shop window for “We Won’t Live with Poverty”
  • A special anti-bullying event with children’s author Jennifer Ogden.
  • A special South Sudan Fundraiser featuring Sudanese musician Hassan Salih Nour on October 25th. Two wooden sculptures will be auctioned along with several face masks. The shop will have a special display of all books about African nations and by African writers and musicians.
  • A spooky story reading for Halloween. Oooh spooky.
  • The first Socks and Chocs charity drive. Gift Divine chocolates and donate warm, clean socks.
  • Festive Friday party where you can enjoy mince pies while writing Christmas cards in the company of Oxfam volunteers and friends.

….and a whole new range of products!

  • A whole new set of Oxfam Unwrapped gift cards.
  • A whole new range of Christmas Shop products including wrapping paper, advent candles and calendars, Christmas ornaments and more!
  • Our popular workshop on making Paper Christmas Trees from recycled books.

Join us in closing out 2015 with even more financial support for Oxfam’s work — all while brightening your life and enjoying your community!
