At Oxfam Books, we love Christmas. If you happen to pop into the shop you’ll notice we’ve already got into the swing of the festive season, selling a range of seasonal products from Fairtrade advent calendars to Christmas crackers as the countdown to Christmas officially gets underway! But this year, what we love even more is Christmas with a Difference.

Christmas with a Difference is a special event run by St Michael le Belfrey Church, with the aim being to help you make a difference this Christmas by showing you how your spending can help others. Oxfam will have a stall at the event, which takes place from 10.30am – 4pm on Saturday 23rd November, and we will be selling our range of beautiful Christmas cards and other holiday gifts with all of the profits going towards Oxfam’s work. This event is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness of Oxfam and their fantastic work to eradicate poverty around the world. By purchasing one of our Christmassy items, you can kick-start the holiday season knowing that you are making a difference to somebody living in poverty this Christmas.

Oxfam will be at St Michael’s Christmas with a Difference event all day, so pay us a visit this Saturday and see if anything festive takes your fancy, whilst learning how you can make a difference over the holiday season. With free refreshments provided all day and a whole host of local charities attending, how could you say no?!

Details of the event can be found here.
