Did you know Trailwalker and Trailtrekker participants together walked a whopping 157,200 miles this year - nearly 20 times the distance the Olympic torch travelled before it reached the Olympic stadium!

Unsurprisingly, our most popular blog this week was the one that captured the zeitgeist: our top 10 Olympic Oxfam facts!

Here's a less fun fact: in Yemen, it's not uncommon for girls to be married when they're only 13 years old. Amal Alariqi explored the issue and found out how Oxfam is raising awareness.

With our campaigners heading to festivals up and down the UK, sharing ways to eat, shop and grow our way to a fairer food future, Food Power has been in the news recently - from revolutionary people power to fish flying off the shelves.

Caroline Gluck visited Yemen to find out how people there are dealing with its worst-ever humanitarian crisis.

Finally, campaigner Lucy Aitken-Read paid a visit to Number 10 to tell David Cameron that 600,000 people want immediate action to fight hunger in West Africa.
