Donations of stock to Oxfam's Irish charity shops have dropped by 40 per cent in the last year, but the charity still hopes to extend its network of shops in 2012.

According to Oxfam Ireland's head of retail, Trevor Anderson, the decrease in donations was especially worrying, given the increased demand for stock.

"We are short of everything. It just goes. Whatever we get in, of reasonable quality, we can sell it," he said.
