  • The last young girl I dressed, left bursting with confidence saying ‘I’m going to nail this job now’! I often get a tear in my eye when that happens.

  • Being a volunteer at Fitted for Work is a satisfying and fulfilling job. I meet different kinds of people with different backgrounds and being connected with them means I’ve learnt a lot. Sharing your knowledge and helping them especially in understanding their needs and bringing their self-esteem back is a highlight.

  • As a volunteer for Fitted for Work, it has given me much pleasure to offer support to women who are trying to return back into the workforce. I get a real buzz from seeing the potential in these wonderful women who are on a positive journey of change and the look on their faces when they see themselves transformed in front of a mirror. I am also happy to have found a great charity that I can donate my business clothing samples to. Giving back has empowered me!
