UK Clothing Poverty Day

9th June 2018

Event Overview

UK Clothing poverty day is an annual awareness event supported by Sharewear Clothing Scheme. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of clothing poverty and how it affects people in crisis across the UK. Sharewear provides emergency clothing, shoes and bedding to people in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire but has also supported further afield in the UK working with partners such as The Red Cross Emergency Response Unit and Grenfall Fire disaster. Last year they upcycled and clothed 4,000 people and the numbers continue to increase year on year.
