2012 has been a big year for us here in balham (the first full year we’ve been open) and none of it would be possible without our fantastic volunteers and customers all of whom use their passion for books and reading to help Oxfam create a world free from poverty and suffering. The video above shows an innovative use of our book donations while the one below is a little something about books and Oxfam.
We’re very lucky to be able to enjoy the wonderful world of literature (and to do good work from it) but there are many people around the world who don’t have that luxury. Education can be the single thing that broadens people’s horizons and helps to create a fairer world for everyone. Just £10 (or the cost of four novels from our shelves) can ensure that schools stay open and that education is a continuing priority around the world.
