Thanks to everyone who came to the fun day! We raised over £450 and had a lovely day in the sunshine. Here are some photos from the day…
Hello out there, we are an Oxfam charity shop in Didsbury Manchester and are having a Royal Celebration Event 30.04.11 in the car park at the back of our shop.
We DESPERATELY need a couple of outdoor games for the event. We are being quoted over £100 for hire of same and wondered if there is anyone out there who could help with a free loan of games. We can collect and return if in the Manchester area.
Funds raised will help to build a classroom overseas!

Murder, mystery and poetry on World Book Day
Saturday 5 March
Oxfam in Didsbury will celebrate World Book Day by giving away almost 100
free books on Saturday 5 March.
Customers at the charity bookshop will have the opportunity to take home
brand new copies of Carol Ann Duffy’s acclaimed poetry collection, The
World’s Wife, and C.J. Sansom’s bestseller, Dissolution, a murder mystery
novel set in Tudor times.
The free book giveaway will take place from 5 to 7 pm at a special late-night
opening at the Wilmslow Road store on 5 March.
Didsbury Oxfam Manager, Wendy Elliott, said: ‘We are really proud of our
wonderful bookshop. We have a fantastic range of reading material, from
children’s and adult fiction to history, science and biography. We also have
an impressive collection of rare books and obscure titles.
‘On World Book Day I’d like to thank our hard-working volunteers and local
people for their custom and their generous donations of books. With their
continued support our bookshop will just keep going from strength to strength!’
World Book Day, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of
books and reading, is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
Just thought I would show you what is being put together from donations in the way of costumes for our International Women’s Day event! One of our lovely volunteers will be getting “arrested”! Come along on March 12th to support Oxfam Didsbury, eat cupcakes, listen to music and watch as the suffragettes chain themselves to the railings!
