Oxfam Shop Leicester Market Street

The Oxfam Shop in Leicester specialises in books, music and bridalwear. The shop has two floors. The first floor consists of a large book and music department along with our great range of Sourced by Oxfam products. The second floor is mainly bridal wear including mother of bride and eveningwear. 

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
