Oxfam Books Petergate’s latest venture is in joint partnership with York St John University, where we’re working directly with the University to collect donations of good quality books, DVDs and CDs in a drive called “Declutter before Christmas.”
ImageThe project, which saw donation bins installed at Holgate reception on Monday, is running right through to the end of November, leaving plenty of time for students and staff to clear out their shelves and declutter.

Donations can be put in the Oxfam donation bins in Holgate reception, or handed in directly to the Holgate reception desk. Alternatively, students and staff can save their donations until 20th November, when Oxfam Books Petergate will be having an information stand at York St John University for the day – we’d love to speak to you personally and thank you for your donations!

The information stand will be manned by a few of us from the shop, and we’ll be there to personally receive books, DVDs and CDs – items we really need in the run up to Christmas. We’ll also be talking about exactly how your donations help and volunteering opportunities in the shop for students and staff, as well as answering any questions.Image

We’re really excited about working with York St John University.
