The stars hosted a Great British tea party at the the Hay Festival in Wales, and are calling for people across the UK to donate more than half a million books to sell at Oxfam's shops before 21 June to raise funds for the organisation's fight against global poverty.

Fry says: "It's really important to look at your bookshelves and find some books that you think you can live without to donate to Oxfam.

"Books are a wonderful gift because you're giving something that is brim-full of ideas and stories while also supporting the valuable work that Oxfam is doing around the world. Apart from anything else you'll clear your shelves for more books!"
