Oxfam Limerick may be closed but you can still shop Oxfam…

first_imgOXFAM Limerick may be closed, but you can still shop Oxfam this Friday with Fashion Relief TV – Broadcaster Lorraine Keane ‘s sustainable fashion fundraiser with Oxfam Ireland.The Fashion Relief team are springing back after a short break with rails packed full of pre-loved, brand-new and designer clothing, bags, shoes and accessories. Broadcaster Lorraine Keane said: “As the lockdown continues, which means Oxfam Limerick remains closed to play its part in Ireland’s response, we are delighted to be able to offer you a Covid-safe way to still shop Oxfam.“As expected, we’ll be showcasing beautiful pre-loved and brand-new pieces from the wardrobes of some of Ireland’s most fashionable women as well as from designers and boutiques from all over Ireland. People who tune in can click on the items they love and buy them then and there on Fashion Relief TV!“Thanks to the generosity of donors we have created our very own little Fashion Relief circular economy – as long as people continue to donate fabulous items, we will continue to have fabulous bargains up for grabs.Along with Oxfam Limerick, Fashion Relief is part of Oxfam’s solution to ‘throwaway fashion’, encouraging people to donate pre-loved items and reduce the amount of clothes that end up in landfill as well as shopping second-hand to give pre-loved clothes a longer life.  So, by bagging a bargain from Fashion Relief you’ll be shopping more sustainably and doing your bit for people and planet. What’s not to love?Keane continued: “I’ve seen first-hand how the profits raised by Fashion Relief and Oxfam’s network of shops help some of the poorest and most at risk people across the world. Even though things may have slowed down or come to a stop here, humanitarian crises continue – and are worsening since the pandemic was declared.“Just three weeks ago, a massive fire swept through the refugee camps of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. The fires left 10,000 families displaced and in urgent need of basics like food and water. Hundreds more were injured. This was yet another devastating blow to the Rohingya people who fled shocking violence and persecution in Myanmar. Oxfam continues to be able to support and respond to events like this because of the generous support of Limerick people.”The show will be packed full of brand-new and pre-loved donated clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as a host of designer labels like Preen, Celine, Ganni and Alexander McQueen, pieces donated by Laura Whitmore, Caroline Downey and Lorraine Keane, and much-loved Irish labels like Aideen Bodkin, Louise Kennedy and Fee G – at bargain prices.To celebrate the re-launch Keane also has an incredible giveaway via Instagram.Keane said: “Who doesn’t love a little competition, and with a Loulerie necklace up for grabs, we hope the competition will be fierce! All people have to do to enter is RSVP for Fashion Relief TV via www.oxfamireland.org/fashionrelief, take a screen shot and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #FashionReliefTV to be in with a chance to win.
