What a joke!

They charge a fortune for their donated books and records, some of which can be bought cheaper on Ebay!

The again, the Ferrari driving 'Chief Executives' need to fund their next holiday.

You do talk a load of old tosh!

You don't have to donate if you want to hear the talk - but 50p is a small appreciation. The books and records aren't expensive and the takings go to a good cause. And as for the Ferrari comments - what nonsense.

The Oxfam chief executive's salary appears considerably less than the cost of a Ferrari.

As Helen said. Tosh..
