When Shin told me about the task I knew I had the right person signed up! What doesn't Nisha know about Asian fashion??? She's our glam Bollywood Queen!
So the task was to sort through all the donated lenga's; salwar kameez; dress suits; suits; sari's and general party sharty items into 3 piles...
Hang with pride and sell for a fiver;
Bargain bucket good to go but missing an item for 3 quid;
Long lost love not worth keeping so lets give to rag.
In our best 'market trader' accents we got to work...
Classy is not what you wear... It's how you carry yourself
Some of the donated items were of immaculate condition and a real bargain at a fiver... we hope some lucky locals pick these items up!
Within one hour we had sifted through 2 big boxes of clothes and labelled them accordingly!
So from drab to fab we did our job!

Tonight we helped Slough Outreach with a sorting task of the items that they would distribute to their homeless community. The Hub was looking amazing now with tables for sorting items and a full shelfing system.
We met at the task location and three of us headed out for a walk around the block before heading back to the Slough Outreach Hub to start the task. It was great to have Jenni join us for a task.
Shin wanted some big bags unpacked, sorted into items (such as gloves, snoods, socks etc ) and re packed into crates so that when he wanted to take them out on his outreach visits it would be easier for him to find the items.
So that's what we did...and I think Shin was crateful for the sorting!
Peter had a special task. One of putting an MDF table together...and we knew if antone can he can!
It was a short but swift task tonight but we are back there on Friday morning to sort through the donated Indian clothes.
