Debi’s donation drive set to raise funds for Oxfam Fashion Relief

by Sylvia Pownall

The woman behind the Lucan Christmas Nursing Home Drive is now knee-deep in her next fundraising venture – Oxfam’s Fashion Relief.

Debi Nevin is starting her ‘donation drive’ in Lucan and is willing to collect unwanted clothes from anywhere within a five kilometre radius.

She told Dublin Gazette: “Over the years, I’ve been a big fan of charity shops, and bagged some great bargains from designer clothes to high street shops, for a fraction of the price.

“So I’m sending out an appeal for ladies and children’s clothing, BNWT, that is, brand new with tags or nearly new.”

Local football club Esker Celtic is also on board and have offered the clubhouse as a drop off point.

Oxfam’s ‘Fashion Relief TV’, which airs every second Friday, is temporarily paused, but you can still buy online at

Debi said: “Any clothing I get which is not high end will be donated to local refuge centres and homeless services within the Lucan wider community.

“There’s a marvellous lady in our locality, Bernadette Fagan who does phenomenal work for the homeless”.

Debi noted the clothing she is seeking must be of wearable, good quality, either as new or barely worn. Contact her at or private message on Instagram: debinev8_ or communityspiritproject
