Letter from Oxfam about their Half Moon shops (30 August 2013)

On Monday 26 August you will have received an email about our newly fitted Herne Hill shop.
Sadly both Oxfam shops in Herne Hill have been severely flooded due to a burst water main in Half Moon Lane. Most of the stock has been destroyed by the flood water and the shop team will now have to rebuild their donated stock from scratch.
The shop will be closed from now until nearer Christmas but we will keep you posted on its progress.
We will need your help in getting the shop back on its feet again. When the shop is up and running we will let you know and the Herne Hill team will welcome all of your donations.
Please keep your eye out for the Bookshop at the Herne Hill Sunday Market. We aim to set up a temporary stall there most weekends in light of the recent floods.
For up to date information on how the repair is progressing, keep in touch with us:
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
With best wishes
Oxfam Shop Team
