Well hey there!
We had our third virtual meeting last night, it went brilliantly and I loved seeing everyone. Some of us carried on way past the end of the meeting discussing current affairs, social distancing and lots of other things; it’s this kind of contact that some of us are missing and I can’t wait to see everyone again soon.
Our guest was Louise from Sharewear Clothing Scheme who is such a passionate speaker on the wonderful charity that she founded and is an massive part of. We talked about the charity and the current campaign on Clothing Poverty which rears it’s head in so many different ways, and how we might be able to help. This week is Clothing Poverty Awareness Week #CPAW2020, and I would urge everyone to visit Sharewear’s Facebook page to learn more about current campaigns and their ongoing work. They have been busier than ever during lock-down and haven’t ever closed their doors to those in need.
They are also intending to expand into Sheffield and have a fundraising page to get it off the ground; this will benefit so many people, not just in Sheffield but it’s surrounding areas and ultimately the Nottingham area too.
We had a fantastic conversation on Sharewear, sustainability, ethical shopping, and what effect this period of lock-down might have on us and our shopping habits in the future; lots to think about.
See you all again soon,
