Don’t ditch gifts donate them

Oxfam Scotland is appealing for unwanted Christmas gifts to be donated to their shops to help them raise even more life-saving funds in 2014.

The charity is asking people to hand in any good quality items they no longer want to shops following Christmas, so they can be resold and turned into funds for Oxfam’s vital work with people living in poverty in Scotland and around the world.

Whether it’s gifts you don’t like, or making room for presents you love, Oxfam is hoping readers will donate to a charity shop, rather than binning items.

Oxfam’s Tom Richardson said: “Oxfam shops are vital in raising funds to fight poverty in Scotland.‎
