A 'Thank You' from Oxfam
Passing by, you might wonder why the shop window of Oxfam on Stert Street, Abingdon has turned into a farmyard, featuring a small calf and a large chicken ? It's there to say a big Thank You to all the Oxfam customers over the Christmas and New Year Period who donated money to the appeal to buy Farmyards for families living in poverty. From seeds and tools for growing crops, to animals that produce manure, this gift helps farmers get what they need to earn a living as well as training them in sustainable techniques.
In fact, the people of Abingdon were so generous that we raised money for four Farmyards, not just one which was the original aim. So thank you - not just from everyone at the Oxfam Shop, but from all those farmers who will benefit, too.
