Meet Irfan and Abreen , our first husband and wife volunteers, who will be joining us on Fridays in the new year. We still have volunteering roles available if you, like them, would like to help us with our work. Work like we carried out today, clothing five families and making a delivery to the Health Shop of clothes for the homeless to be given out at their Christmas breakfast. Please get in touch asap if you want to join the team.
At a very busy session today at Sharewear we clothed five families with members ranging from an unborn baby boy to a 67 year-old grandma. A visitor from Recycle and Free in Sherwood Facebook group, who support our work , was so blown away by the range and quality of clothing and the numbers of people we were helping that she has put a very emotional post on their group page. And best of all, we welcomed Shaun, pictured, who came for an interview to join us as a volunteer. Shaun is committing to both of our sessions every week and is going to be such a brilliant asset to our team. We still desperately need more volunteers to join Shaun, especially for Friday mornings. You don’t have to come to both sessions every week, but we do ask that you commit to at least one of our time-slots and come at least fortnightly if possible. We need drivers, donations processors, loaders and unloaders, and shop floor assistants. Time slots are Fridays 10am –12.30pm, 11am– 1pm, 1pm –3pm or Wednesdays 12.30pm — 3pm Why not make 2017 the year that you join Shaun and the rest of the team?
We desperately need more people to join us on Saturday 14th November 1pm–4pm to sort through a backlog of donations. At the same time we will be making up 50 packs of clothes to be given to homeless people at Christmas by our partner NHS Health Shop, Broad Street, Nottingham. So far we have very few helpers.Even if you can only give one hour please consider coming to give us a hand and maybe bringing a friend with you. We really do need your help on this one-off occasion!! There’ll be lots of tea and cake to keep us going! Leave a comment if you can help.
