Oxfam Cymru statement

Rachel Cable, Head of Oxfam Cymru:

“We are concerned by reports that a member of Oxfam’s team in the Oxfam shop in Hay-on-Wye made an unacceptable comment about the Welsh language.

“We are very sorry for any offence that this has caused. The alleged remark does not reflect Oxfam’s values and we take allegations of this nature very seriously. We strive to ensure that inclusivity and diversity are at the heart of our approach wherever we work in the world, including here in Wales.

“We are now looking into this matter with the utmost urgency.”
