Oxfam Shop Herne Hill needs help!

Hi all

Does anyone have a few hours a week they could possibly spare? The Oxfam shop in Herne Hill is one of our most successful shops - receiving some great donations and with lots of customers, but they are currently very short on volunteer numbers and the more successful the shop, the more volunteers that are needed to take in donations, work with customers and sort and price stock (mostly clothing - and some amazing items - so perfect if you love fashion)

Latest news from Oxfam Herne Hill

Latest from Oxfam at 20 Half Moon Lane, from their FB page:

"Our shop will not be able to open until the end of November at the earliest because of the flooding. Sadly we lost everything as it was all stored in the cellar whilst the planned refurbishment happened. So this Saturday (7th of September) from about 10 am to 3 pm, we shall be outside the shop to accept selected donations ( clothing, china, books and music) and talk to people. Please come and visit us. We’ll be doing this on selected weekends until we can open again. Please don’t leave donations outside of the shop when we are not there as the builders cannot take them in and we can’t use them. Check our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates."

Turney & Burbage Roads on Half Moon Lane & trader developments

Turney and Burbage Roads have published their WP pages with information about Half Moon Lane (now due to reopen 26 Aug) and restrictions in surrounding roads. They have also compiled a list of area-affected traders and what their status is ... lots of photos too




Turney and Burbage Roads also direct readers to the Herne Hill Flood Facebook group page which includes more news about the affected area, like which shops have had power restored or which will be closed extensively (according to one Timeline contributor, both Oxfams have lost a lot of stock and will be shut until October), also a Thames Water and claim rights FAQ link.





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)
