Are you having a big sort out in preparation for Christmas and the influx of guests or presents? 

Oxfam, 243-247 High Street, is appealing to Guildford residents to donate any unwanted homeware, toys, DVDs, CDs, vinyl and computer games.

Proceeds from the sale of these items will go to Oxfam’s projects to alleviate suffering in war-torn Syria and the typhoon-battered Philippines.

James Wyncoll the Oxfam branch manager said: “Homeware, toys DVDs, CDs, vinyl and games sell best but any good quality items will be welcome. We have parking outside so it is easy to drop off bags of unwanted items.”

There are other ways you help to support the work of Oxfam this Christmas. The charity sells cards, has a brochure of “unwrapped” alternative gifts such as buying a goat for a village, providing money for allotments or funds for building toilets in schools as well as supporting campaigns to stop global corporations from exploiting people in poorer nations.

Unusually Guildford has three Oxfam shops. This one is at the top of the Upper high Street next to Pizza Express.
