Ospreys Rugby Stars want goats, school books and mosquito nets on Christmas Shopping lists
Ospreys stars, Ian Gough, Huw Bennett and Ashley Beck are calling on people to back Oxfam's Unwrapped range of gifts and buy decent Christmas presents this year - putting an end to receiving unwanted gifts like fluffy dice, woolly jumpers and leopard print umbrellas!
Goats, school books and mosquito nets are just some of the gifts they want to see on Christmas shopping lists. With a huge range of fun and unusual gifts to chose from including "buy a bog" (£50), 5 bags of seeds (£10), 8 school books (£6) or a mosquito net (£15) you are guaranteed to find something for all your friends and family! There are gifts for the ultimate foodie, to the DIYer, animal lover or bookworm. The Christmas 2008 Oxfam Unwrapped range is the biggest yet and is on sale now.
Ian Gough said:
"It's a great alternative to buying yet another pointless Christmas present for someone! You are buying friends and relatives presents that really make a difference to other people's lives. I like the idea of buying a camel or goat for someone!" Huw Bennett added:
"It also avoids the disappointment of receiving another unwanted Christmas present! In fact there are some fun secret Santa ideas that I will consider for the boys!"
The boys are sure that the Oxfam Unwrapped gifts will be a great talking point in the Ospreys changing rooms too:
Gough added, "How else can you buy a goat or a camel for somebody for Christmas! There's plenty of rubbish out there that we buy for each other for a laugh, but with Unwrapped presents you can have a laugh but still make a massive difference to somebody's life."
Buying one of Oxfam's Unwrapped gifts means you get the chance to give twice - you get a gift for a friend or loved one and at the same time you're giving to charity and helping some of the poorest people in the world.
Head of Oxfam Cymru, Steve Brooks said:
"Oxfam Unwrapped has solved so many gift dilemmas over the years and has made such a difference in supporting Oxfam's work. At a time when people want to make their money go further buying an Unwrapped gift is the perfect solution and this year it couldn't be easier! We hope to raise even more money this Christmas"
