Items will be priced in the same way as in Oxfam high street stores
Oxfam has set up an online store which shoppers can visit to buy items donated to the charity.

The site features some 50,000 items for sale include donated clothes, books, and household goods.

All are being sold at fixed prices in the same way as items at Oxfam's High Street stores.

The website also features items not donated including Fairtrade foods including chocolate and coffee, jewellery and other gifts.

Oxfam director Barbara Stocking said: "This is the one website where customers will know that all their purchases will directly support Oxfam working with people in poverty across the world."

The charity said it hoped to have listed 120,000 items on its site by next spring.
