Didsbury's Oxfam store appeals for donations as winter weather takes toll on stock levels

Didsbury's Oxfam store appeals for donations as winter weather takes toll on stock levels

By Jessica Elliott

Oxfam in Didsbury are asking for donations of books, clothes and jewellery to fill their empty shelves.

A busy festive period and successful post Christmas sales has meant the shop is in need of good quality stock to help boost sales.

The wintry weather last week also saw a fall in donations as people were reluctant to leave their homes in the snow.

Wendy Elliott, manager of Didsbury Oxfam, said: “Now that the weather is finally improving, I hope that we’ll see a rise in donations.  We particularly need clothes, books and jewellery, but toys, accessories and homeware items will also be most welcome.”

She added: “I’d like to thank people for their generosity and hope that they will continue to support Oxfam’s work fighting poverty at home and abroad.”
