Harpenden is a leafy commuter town, mid-way between St Albans and Luton, readily accessed by road and rail. In fact our shop is just a minute's walk from the railway station. We sell a wide range of books, vinyl, DVDs and sheet music with a particularly strong children's book section. Our history and older collectable books are also very popular with our customers.
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.
Oxfam shops are always delighted to accept donations of quality undamaged items that you no longer want. Our shop teams are trained to make as much money as possible from your generosity to fund Oxfam's poverty busting work around the world. Items that sell particularly well are current fashion trends, quality paperback fiction and all accessories. And Oxfam is unique in that any textiles that are not sold via our shops are sent to our Wastesaver recycling plant to ensure we make as much money as possible from your generosity.
We rely on the generosity of people like yourself to keep our shops brimming with quality items. If you have a large donation of heavy goods for our shop, such as records or books we might be able to arrange a collection so please feel free to call us.
Volunteering with us is a challenging and rewarding experience. We have lots of opportunities and are always on the look out for passionate people to lend a hand.
We are looking for enthusiastic and well motivated vehicle owners who could collect donations from the surrounding area. Mileage expenses will be paid.
