A charity in the UK has revealed its most bizarre gifts of 2008, including mouldy cheese. Oxfam said it had seen a surge in strange donations in its 60th year of trade on the high street. Charity workers in Edinburgh opted to sell a piece of cheese, complete with mould in the shape of Greek king Zeus, on eBay, where it fetched £26 (€28.9). Oxfam received 28 million items in 2008, racking up profit of £20m.
