LAST year I was very pleased to open the newly refurbished Oxfam shop in Bray which continues go from strenght to strenght. Even the baby steps of buying fairtrade coffee and tea, fairtrade chocolate or random gifts (they have really lovely jewellery and bags) helps to support ethical shopping. But now I notice there's an online shop and I wanted to do a blog plug for it - . Also, I wanted to let people know about The Cake Sale - The Cake Sale is a band featuring a loose and expansive collective of musicians and writers who have combined to create a 9-song CD of the same name on Oxfam Records. All profits will go to support Oxfam’s Make Trade Fair campaign and our overseas programme work. Songs on the album have been written by Dave Geraghty, Emm Gryner, Paul Noonan, Glen Hansard, Ollie Cole, Damien Rice, Conor Deasy and Matt Lunson.

Lead vocalists for the project include Lisa Hannigan, Nina Persson, Gary Lightbody, Gemma Hayes, Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter, Conor Deasy and Neil Hannon.
