Oxfam’s Online Shop is based The Northern Logistics Centre, Batley, a warehouse which houses both Oxfam’s Online and Festival Shop operations, as well as, a textile sorting plant, and transport and distribution offices. The Oxfam Northern Logistics Centre uses donated clothing and textiles to raise vital funds to help Oxfam fight for a fairer world without poverty! We are the only charity in the UK to have our own sorting plant, meaning no Oxfam donation goes to landfill!
All our volunteering roles are based within the Online Shop, which launched in 2007. We were the first online charity shop in the UK and remain the largest to this day, showcasing a broad range of fabulous textile donations to a worldwide audience; from high-end to high-street, vintage to contemporary.
