Oxfam Ireland’s new venture

Hi everyone, haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been sick over Christmas but back to normal now. Today I’d like to tell you a bit about a new joint venture from Oxfam Ireland and SIX. Last month we were invited to attend the opening of a new store in Castlecourt Shopping Centre in Belfast. The new store is called SIX 4 GOOD and it is the first of its kind in Ireland. All the items in the store are brand new and have been donated free to Oxfam by European brand SIX and all the profits from the store will go to support the charity’s work worldwide. As Oxfam is a charity we have supported over the years we were really keen to see what this new venture was all about, so we headed down to Castlecourt to have a look.

The store is really bright and welcoming and full of a fabulous range of jewellery, bags, purses, sunglasses, scarves, hats and gloves. The prices are fantastic with earrings starting at only £2 and bags from around £5 and as all the items are brand new, the quality is great. If you are in Belfast and are looking for a present for someone, or just want to treat yourself to something new, we would really recommend that you pop into the SIX 4 GOOD store and have a look around. You are bound to find something you like and you will be helping a very worthwhile cause at the same time.

We were gifted a scarf and gloves each and we can honestly say we have been wearing them continually over the last month and are really impressed with the colours, style and quality.

This is an innovative venture from Oxfam and we hope that it will be really successful and will be the first of many more stores. Here are a few of the official photos which are much better than mine.

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are ready for 2018.

  1. Glad you are feeling better Karen, your hat suits you. This charity store sounds like a great idea. I always find in England that charity shops are so expensive. If someone was homeless or in dire need of affordable help in buying everyday items including clothes never mind leisure interests, I think they’d struggle. Many charity shops bump up the price on famous branded goods such as a Delia Smith cookbook which is crazy. Many years ago people used to flock to jumble sales which had cheaply priced goods but I suppose it’s all the overheads and requiring a designated shop manager in place. Hope this particular idea thrives, Cx

    1. I’m sure it will because it has a great selection of jewellery & accessories at very reasonable prices. It’s good to see innovative new ways for businesses to support charities too.
