About us

Coronavirus Update:

With festivals and events cancelled, Oxfam needs our support now more than ever. We have therefore set up a Justgiving fund-raising page where you can make donations.

We are not able to offer our usual sponsored walk but you can find details of our Over the Hills Walk in your own time, on our FORTHCOMING Events Page where yOU WILL ALSO FIND DETAILS OF OUR NEW EMAIL QUIZ.


MSOG was formed in 2011 by a small but enthusiastic group of people intent on raising awareness and funds for Oxfam by putting on a variety of events.  We are based in and around the cathedral city of Wells where most of our fundraising takes place.

Our biggest event is the ONE WORLD FAIR which takes place every year in Wells Town Hall and brings together around 30 different charities all with the same aim – to make the world a better place.

Membership of the Mid Somerset Oxfam Group is open to everyone. MSOG is committed to an inclusive approach that fully represents many different cultures and backgrounds. MSOG recognises that diversity is an integral part of our history, culture and identity and will strive to ensure inclusion across race, gender, age, religion and identity.

In 2017 the Mid Somerset Oxfam Group planted an apple tree to commemorate Oxfam’s 75th birthday.
