Oxfam Trailwalker 2019 to start in Edgecumbe

The Oxfam Trailwalker 2019 course will start in Edgecumbe this year -- with thousands set to take part.

Oxfam New Zealand Events Operations Coordinator Kara Reid says there's a significant link between what Edgecumbe has been through and the work of Oxfam New Zealand.

She says the flooding of Edgecumbe in April 2017 damaged houses, livelihoods and community spirit and Oxfam supports people affected by similar natural disasters.
