Oxfam to turn to Oxglam

Local charity shop Oxfam changes to "Oxglam" on March 2, with a fashion show featuring as its star a designer wedding dress. The fashion show is being arranged to celebrate the launch of the shop's new spring fashion line and will feature all the latest Oxfam styles and vintage clothing at great value.

Limited tickets for the 6pm show are available at the Oxfam shop on Patrick Street in Tullamore. All outfits on the catwalk can be bought on the night, with proceeds going to support Oxfam's work overseas.

Oxfam chief Jim Clarken encouraged attendance, saying that just €10 spent in an Oxfam shop can be used to buy six buckets to help families get access to water. To find out more, drop in to see shop manager Suzanne O'Rourke and her team of volunteers.
