Oxfam helping those in need

Carol Naylor and John Crapp are ready for the Oxfam book sale.

Ocean Grove Oxfam International Group works to help people hit by disasters.

Earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, land-slides, floods and famine – there have been many of these in the region this year.

Oxfam members also raise money to support education and development projects for the self-sufficiency of people in poorer areas, including parts of Australia.

Money has been raised through twice yearly book sales for more than 30 years.

Oxfam is attempting to raise at least $3000 to add to the total over the years.

A major newspaper group donates new books to the local group for sale. The sales are staffed solely by volunteers and all money raised goes to Oxfam.

The next sale will be held on Saturday 24 November, at the Uniting Church Hall, corner Eggleston St and The Parade, Ocean Grove.

The sale is on from 9am to 1pm.

For further details, contact Liz Gilbert on 0418 520503 or Lesley Pope on 52552201.
