Two Irish envoys won’t quit
ACTRESS Minnie Driver is the first celebrity to resign as an ambassador for Oxfam International over the prostitution scandal. However, two of the three Irish envoys for the troubled charity have told the Irish Daily Mail they will continue on in their roles.
Rugby star Andrew Trimble told the Mail: ‘I am committed to my role of Oxfam Ireland ambassador and look forward to building on the work we have done together.’ And beauty blogger and Xposé stylist Lorna Weightman said: ‘I will be continuing my role as an Oxfam Ireland ambassador, building on the work we have done over the last few years.’
The third, musician Sharon Corr could not be contacted last night.
Ms Driver, who starred in Good Will Hunting and the Irish film Circle Of Friends and, said: ‘I am nothing short of horrified by the allegations.’ She attacked what she described as ‘abhorrent mistakes of a troubling organisation’. She said she was ‘devastated for the women who were used by people sent there to help them’
