In 2019/20 Oxfam's retail activities made a total income of £18.11 million to support Oxfam's aim of ending extreme poverty. This enabled us to support people to help themselves out of poverty, as well as allowing us to act immediately when a disaster happens - saving lives and providing essential resources to help rebuild communities. Can you help us raise even more money this year? We won't live with poverty. If you feel the same way we would love to work with you!
