Wet Weather Wellies

sharewearclothingscheme The wet weather didn’t deter a stream of families from flooding into Sharewear today.  21 people were clothed from 7 referrals, including an unborn child. The truth behind the propaganda which  programmes such as Benefits Street pedal was clear to see. One of our clients was a family on benefits with five children, paying rent because their housing benefit doesn’t  cover it, struggling to feed their children and to run the home. None of the children had adequate shoes, coats or clothes. All of them left with new shoes, wellies, coats, school uniform and enough clothes to keep them going for the months ahead. The family has got rid of their one TV, as they can’t afford it. That’s the real Benefits Street. And that’s why demand for our service is growing.
