Oxfam celebrates 20 years

20 years ago today Oxfam threw open its doors for business.

The Strand Street charity shop was opened in 1988 by Sir Laurence New - then Lieutenant Governor of the Island - who returned for the special day.

It has grown vastly in size since its early days.

To celebrate the birthday there was a half price sale on goods and Fairtrade tasters for all customers.

Oxfam is one of the major retailers of Fairtrade goods on our 'Fairtrade Island'- a prestigious title awarded last month to reward on-going fairtrade endeavours.
