So we started 4 years ago as a small team of 3 trying to utilise the capabilities as a business that we had at that time. We were overwhelmed with the donations, volunteers and it’s grown and grown. Year 1 we set a target to get 500 useable items of clothing donated yet we hit 4000! Adidas and Nike were quick to support too in that first year… that soon grew to British Airways, M&S, The Great Run Group and Eurostar, to name a few and a couple of supportive tweets from Mo Farah and we were well away!
For the past 2 years we have talked through the dream of becoming a registered charity enabling us to grow and support more homeless people on a more regular basis. Some downtime during Covid has enabled us to really get the ball rolling and we now have 3 agreed trustees already (should we introduce the trustees?)
It’s safe to say that with a ton of passion and our ‘we’ll find a way’ approach we have finally reached that goal!
