Oxfam appeal for donations

A huge fire has devastated Oxfam's Wastesaver recycling plant and warehouse. Tons of stock destined for their shops were ruined.

Please donate any items you can to your local Oxfam shop (Half Moon Lane)

Anything you can give  will really help, but in particular they need the following for their pop-up Festival Shop:

  • winter clothing including coats, tweeds or fake furs

  • vintage fashion such as dresses, scarves and accessories

  • fancy dress items, wellies, waterproofs, tents and sleeping bags, knitted blankets.

Major Individual Medical Insurance is a flexible insurance plan that can meet most health-care needs and budgets. There are different types of major medical insurance schemes such as individual major medical insurance, short-term major medical insurance, high deductible plan insurance etc. Individuals who are not covered by health insurances by the employer and those who do not fall into any group policy usually seek major individual medical insurance. Individual major medical coverage is more expensive than a group policy.
