Oxfam Pop Up Shop at St Ethelwolds – help of volunteers heart warming after a theft the previous night

Oxfam Pop Up Shop
70 years after the first OXFAM shop opened in Oxford on Broad Street, a pop up Oxfam shop was set up in Abingdon on Saturday. This was in addition to the permanent Abingdon shop on Stert Street.

Lots of volunteers helped set up a  variety of stalls at the St Ethelwold’s pop-up shop, down East St Helen Street.

They were there all day to help as customers came and went. I got there rather late when they were packing up so did not get a picture of the sleigh outside.

The manager said it was a wonderful day with so many good people helping. To her it was very heart warming after what had been a bad night. The Stert Street shop had been broken into, through the side shop window. Objects were stolen, as were the contents of a charity box made by school children to raise money for a village in Africa.
