Southport Oxfam is now a year old.
As a founding member, I’ delighted to say that the group is going from strength to strength, with exciting fundraising plans for the year ahead.
WHAT IS OXFAM?
Oxfam is a global movement of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn’t inevitable. It’s an injustice which can, and must, be overcome.
Oxfam is dedicated to building a just and safer world focusing on people’s basic rights. It is passionate about ending poverty and in helping to rebuild the lives affected by it. There are programmes in more than 70 countries working with local people to improve their lives.
It’s an enormous undertaking but Oxfam has talented and committed partners, volunteers, supporters and staff who share the same values.
AND THE VOLUNTEERS?
Oxfam volunteers in shops, offices, groups and at events are helping change lives right now – and developing valuable skills and friendships along the way. Time is precious, so why not use yours to do something important?
If you would like to get involved in our fundraising efforts, why not come along to one of Southport Oxfam Group’s monthly meetings?
We are a small, friendly group of loyal and committed supporters who raise our local profile and rally the community with fundraising events to support poor people around the world. We guarantee you’ll have great fun organising events such as quiz nights, live music and band events, bag packs, meals etc.
It’s all about doing what you love – for Oxfam, locally.
We meet at The Crown Hotel, Liverpool Road, Birkdale, Southport at 7.30pm on the first Tuesday of every month. You are welcome to just drop in and say “hello” at any time.
Or you can call me, Paul Wolfenden, for further details on 01704 569111.

UPDATE: as of August 2022, the Southport Oxfam Group has ceased activities due to lack of volunteer numbers.
But you can still support Oxfam locally by calling into the shop on London Street, in Southport town centre.
