volunteers at the Oxfam books and music shop in Henley have been honoured with badges to mark their years of service.

Georgia Boon, head of volunteering for Oxfam, presented 28 badges to volunteers to mark between five and 15 years of service at the annual volunteers lunch at the Red Lion Hotel.

Ms Boon, who used to work at the Duke Street shop, said: “The volunteers are what make it really special and successful.” Volunteer Sally-Anne Plunket, who has worked at the shop since it opened, said: “I love doing it. I love books and I think Oxfam is a very worthy cause.” Manager Sabine Adams said: “The shop is run entirely run by volunteers. They are a brilliant and very committed group.” The shop was originally in Market Place and moved to Duke Street about four years ago.
