2014 (The Beginning) Shopping Spree


Come and grab a bargain from your local Oxfam Shop. You are sure to be able to grab some real bargain during the January Sale!

Please note that any discount you receive from our sales does not in any way reduce the price Oxfam Australia pays their producers. In actual fact, sales allow Oxfam Shops to free up stock and to work with the producer partners to bring in some great new items!

Launceston Oxfam Shop and Launceston Oxfam Group would like to thank each and everyone of you for your ongoing support and dedication.

The Start to 2014

Dear Launceston Oxfam Group Members and Supporters, 

Happy New Year everyone!

Please see below a "copy and paste" of an email update from Mrs Ros Lewis.

The Global Education course at UTas 14th  – 16th  Jan. is on next week and non-students are also invited to some interesting lectures from very good speakers as well as the acclaimed film I am a girl

I recommend the whole program but specially the first day; key times would be 11 – 1 and 2 – 4. I’ll be attending Day 1 and also the 11-12 session on Day 2. All free. Details & registration link at

Maybe we can also get together after the movie? PLEASE POST A COMMENT (below).
