London (ANI): Scottish singer Annie Lennox has launched a celebrity
charity store in London. The 55-year-old artist has inked a deal
with Oxfam to open the shop in the famous departmental store
The shop will have clothes and several other items that are
donated by celebrities, reports the Daily Star. The earnings will
be used to fund the women projects of Oxfam in countries such as
Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.
"More than two thirds of the world's poorest people are women,
yet they struggle to be heard. We saw an opportunity to bring
together influential women with valuable skills and contacts to try
and make a difference to their lives," says Jane Shepherdson, boss
of fashion brand Whistles, who is helping launch the project.
