Oxfam shops in Merseyside raise over ?500,000

THIS year Oxfam shops in Merseyside managed to raise over ?500,000 to support the charity's work around the world.  The money raised will go towards Oxfam's projects such as supporting thousands of people who are displaced or refugees that the charity is working with in Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Greece. David Jones, Oxfam area manager for Merseyside, says:- "We are so grateful to the generous people of Merseyside who donate to and buy from our shops. This support raises absolutely crucial funds for Oxfam's work helping people in desperate circumstances. It is thanks to our determined staff and volunteers, and our very generous donors and customers that Oxfam can provide life saving water, food and emergency supplies to thousands around the world."

According to the charity, we are living in a time when more people;  almost 60 million; are displaced from their homes than at any time since the Second World War.  David Jones said:- "We are helping those arriving in Italy by providing food, clothes, shoes, and personal hygiene kits as well as longer term psychological and legal support. In Syria, Jordan and Lebanon, we are providing life saving clean water, sanitation and vital support for families who have lost everything. With ?36 Oxfam can provide clean and safe water to families and with ?100 toilets and washing facilities for dozens of people made homeless."

Mr Jones says that more than ever Oxfam shops need donations to raise crucial funds for its work to end extreme poverty and suffering around the world. He added that:- "This year's achievement is a whole team effort; our precious volunteers enjoy friendships, job satisfaction and of course a good cup of tea when they give their time in our shops. If you can spare even just a couple of hours, please pop along to one of our Merseyside shops to find out about how your skills can make a difference.  
As the need around the world grows, we urgently need to scale up our work, and we cannot do this without the people of Merseyside. So please keep donating, volunteering and shopping with Oxfam, it really does make a huge difference to the lives of people around the world."
