Update on Herne Hill Flood - Oxfam shop

Latest from Oxfam (20 Half Moon Lane)


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.

Tracey Emin has generously donated one of her extremely limited edition paralympic poster prints to our Herne Hill Oxfam shop in Half Moon Lane.   You have until Monday, 20th August to leave your sealed bid with staff at the shop. These prints have been selling for £2000+. The print has been professionally framed.  Oxfam's starting price is £1500 and they are looking to raise as much money as they can for their invaluable work.

The book that changed your life

What was the book that changed your life: even just a little bit?


It might be War of the Worlds, War and Peace or even Where's Wally? Whatever your choice, your best book ever can earn you a fab prize in July -- and help a little bit towards tackling poverty throughout the world.


As part of Oxfam's annual Bookfest, the Oxfam Bookshop in Half Moon Lane is running a competition to find out the favourite books of Herne Hill. Come in during Bookfest fortnight (2-17 July) and write 100 words on a postcard about the book that changed your life -- even just a little bit.


We'll choose the best one at the end of the week.


Literally that simple.
