You can make a difference to the lives of people when the boom has dropped out of their world!


When someone has a house fire or flood, collapses in the street, breaks their leg or needs to get out of hospital, the Brish Red Cross steps in to help them. Trained volunteers and staff support people rescued from fires or floods, provide vital first aid, lend a wheelchair or provide someone to lend a helping hand at home.


In the Hampshire area the Brish Red Cross loaned out 4,578 wheelchairs last year, provided first aid cover at various events including the New Forest Show and helped people who leave hospital with their Support at Home service. If you’re unlucky enough to have a flood or a fire you may well be meeng their volunteers too.


These vital services provide a much needed lifeline for people experiencing their own personal crisis. Please help us to keep them going by taking part in a collecon, either in a local store, or in the street, during the flagship event Red Cross Week from May 8th to May 14th and on the odd occasion throughout the year.


Contact either Ruth Crouch, our local Hythe volunteer on 078 1687 4587 or Margery Bradley, our local Lymington volunteer on 01590 674683 to see how you can help to make a difference.

Lymington Oxfamshop, which has recently been refurbished, is almost opposite the Post Office.


We specialise in selling donated books, music, bric‐a‐brac and new products such as greengs cards and calendars. We accept donaons of almost anything portable with the excepon of furniture and electrical goods. Donated clothing is either sold via Oxfam's on‐line shop or sent away for recycling. Donated items are not sent abroad, but the money raised is used to fund Oxfam's work.


Oxfamis best know for its rapid response to emergencies in parcular in providing drinking water and sanitaon but, in collaboraon with other agencies, includes educang and working with poor communies to establish longer‐term soluons to a life free frompoverty and suffering.


Recently Oxfamhas been working to help stop the spread of Ebola, supporng refugees and displaced people in Africa and giving support in drought affected areas in Ethiopia. In parts of Europe we are providing meals, essenal items and toilet facilies at recepon centres for refugees. In the UK Oxfamis working on redistribuon of surplus food from industry, helping to tackle poverty and to support parents This is just a sample of work ongoing, visit Oxfam's website to find out more:www.oxfam.org.uk
