Special guests at "Oxfam Friends"
Al Kinley Editorial assistant for Oxfam's digital communications
28th Sep 2012
The annual meeting of "Oxfam Friends" (ex Oxfam staff, volunteers, donors, governance etc.) will this year have a 70th anniversary flavour, as it will take place a week after Oxfam's 70th birthday in October.
There will be a number of special guests, including relatives of Oxfam's founders and people who worked for us in the early days. The meeting will include around 10 minutes of archive film including an interview with Canon Milford (Oxfam's founder and first Chair), an interview with Jim Howard, and Joe Mitty receiving the Pride of Britain award in 2006.
Our Chief Exeuctive, Barbara Stocking (pictured), will also make her last presentation to the Friends (she leaves us in February) and - in the context of our anniversary - reflect on the last eleven years when she has been Oxfam's Chief Executive.
