Fashion Relief

Fashion Relief on 13/5/18

Soo, first of all what fashion relief was about and what it was for.
It was all Lorraine Keane's idea and she wanted to work alongside Oxfam to raise money for the hunger crisis. To help many people in need in many countries.
She is a lovely, hard working woman and did a fabulous job promoting fashion relief and on the day. She worked incredibly hard!

My voluntary job role was doing some work in the head office, sorting through many donations from the public, boutiques and donated by celebrities! Tagging and labelling them and putting in the correct place.
So many of the people in head office workers and volunteers helped out before the big day and on the actual day of Fashion Relief.
It was such a buzz to be part of it and be able to see so many happy customers and volunteers!

Now, onto the day. I was in charge of volunteers on a stall. They worked so so hard and definitely had good banter with the customers we came across. Throughout the day I was helping with raffle sales, men's stall, kids stall and the catwalk clothes which went on sale.. that was mad! Everyone wanted everything!
My manager in my shop was there too, bless her she got me all food I needed to keep going (muffins, nuts, water)
Was a busy fabulous day and I was promoting a lot of my shop that I volunteer in. (Why not? I knew that it's good promotion)
I saw quite a few of our customers as well, weirdly they didn't recognise me until I spoke to them. That was pretty funny!

In all honesty though, I love what I do which is volunteering and I would recommend it to anyone even if it's just when you are able, retired, can't find work or fancy a change.
I do voluntary campaign work sometimes for the charity I work for too.
Right now I'm off to bloom festival for some campaigning for refugees! Wish me luck and the guys I'm campaigning for!

Another post to come soon.
