Donate your preloved clothes at the sale

We need donations of quality clothing and accessories, both to dress clients for job interviews and to sell at our Fashion Sales. Our mantra when it comes to clothing donations is ‘if it still looks great, please donate.’

If you have anything to donate, bring it along to the sale and pop it into one of the donation stations. Your donation will help support local women into work.
