CAFE-GOERS can mix their coffee with culture and their beer with books next week, thanks to a new charity drive in York.

Oxfam Books have teamed up with The Fossgate Social in Fossgate, for a two-day venture to raise money for Oxfam's work around the world.

On Thursday and Friday of next week, August 28 and 29, Oxfam Books will set up a pop-up stall in the cafe.

Lindsay Rose, Oxfam Books volunteer, said: “We just want as many people as possible to get their hands on our great selection of books and help raise as much money for Oxfam as we can.

"We are big fans of The Fossgate Social here at the shop and thought it was the perfect atmosphere and setting for a pop-up event like ours.”

The cafe opened in the spring and sells craft beers as well as a wide range of coffee and snacks.

There will also be live music throughout the Thursday afternoon and Friday evening on Friday, including from Indie Folk duo The Lungs, Rory Welbrock of Bull, the soulful tones of Mike Johnson, York favourite Zak Ford and Liverpool based folksters Seafaring Creatures.

The pop-up shop will run from 11am to 4pm on Thursday 28 August and from 11am to 8pm on Friday 29 August.

Oxfam's current campaigns include to bring water and other aid to civilians caught up in the Gaza crisis and its ongoing appeal to bring relief to those affected by the crisis in South Sudan.
