Oxfam plea for unwanted gifts

OXFAM Scotland is appealing for unwanted Christmas gifts to be donated to their shops.

The charity wants people to hand in any good-quality items they no longer want so they can be resold and turned into funds for work with people living in poverty.

Oxfam has 50 shops in Scotland and clothing, books, music and bric-a-brac are all in demand following brisk sales over the festive period. Oxfam is hoping the public will donate unwanted items to a charity shop, rather than sending them to landfill.

Tom Richardson, operations manager for Oxfam shops in Scotland, said: "We need good-quality items to keep the shops supplied.

"The public have been very generous this year and we hope they will remember us over the festive period and donate any items they don't want or need to their nearest Oxfam shop."
