Here at Oxfam Petergate we’re always keen to try new things. After making our way unscathed through the January blues, we’re looking ahead to the next couple of months and planning a few events that will be sure to keep us nice and busy (just the way we like to be!)

The first event is one we’re really looking forward to. We’ve teamed up with all Oxfam shops in York and together we’re hosting an event called the Spring Clean. Taking place on Saturday 9th March at the beautiful St William’s College, this is set to be a Spring Clean extravaganza, and the first of what will hopefully go on to be an annual event in the Oxfam York calendar.

As a one-day fundraising event, we will be selling a range of clothes and books to further support Oxfam’s ongoing work to overcome poverty. As well as this, there will be tea, coffee and cakes available to buy for those who need a break from all the Spring Clean excitement.

With everyone welcome, this should be a great event for the whole family! Entry to the Spring Clean is only £1, and all proceeds will go towards helping the countries most affected by poverty and suffering.

Come along anytime from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 9th March, to St William’s College, for what is going to be a brilliant Spring Clean event!
