Oxfam Ireland’s Lisburn shop is calling for donations of unwanted Christmas gifts which could help raise vital funds for the charity’s life-saving work worldwide in 2015.

The shop is calling on local people to help make a world of difference by donating their unwanted Christmas gifts, or presents that they already received a copy of.

Oxfam Lisburn’s shop manager Chris Frieze said: “No matter how small the donation, every little helps. It takes just a moment to bag an unwanted gift but it could change a life forever.

“Whether you received two identical gifts or simply something you don’t need, our shops want the things you don’t and welcome donations of the entire top five unwanted Christmas presents: clothes, beauty products, books, gadgets and jewellery, as well as bags and accessories, CDs, DVDs, homewares, soft furnishings, furniture and even wedding dresses.

“We are calling on people to support their local Oxfam Lisburn shop by dropping in those less than perfect presents and other unwanted items.

“The vital funds your gifts will raise mean we can continue our life-saving work, from emergency response in places like Syria and South Sudan and long-term projects that lift people out of poverty to campaigning that gives a voice to the vulnerable.”

By donating unwanted gifts and other items to Oxfam Lisburn, you’ll be helping to change lives. For more information about Oxfam, visit www.oxfamireland.org
