  • “It’s Like Going Clothes Shopping- but Free!”

    Sharewear would like to express our enormous thanks to a financial donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, for their generous donation of £3,500.  The donor has worked at one of our referral agents and had very satisfied feedback from our clients every time they referred someone to us for help. “We didn’t feel like we were receiving […]
