Wow Factor Hits its Stride

Way back in April, I wrote about the charity Wow Factor which launched in March 2014 in Colchester and aims to help vulnerable women back to work, by equiping them with an interview ready outfit to help the secure a job and move on with their lives.
The charity has now started to get a steady trickle of clients through from our referring partners and this weekend I will be conducting training to the trustees and volunteer dressers in the principles of dressing women based on their colouring, body shape and style preference.  This will take place at our temporary base, Kingsland church in Lexden and will help the dressers to make the women look and feel fantastic as they will in future be able to chose outfits that will make the best of the ladies colouring, shape and natural style. Going forward, the 3 outfits they are provided with, once they have secured a job, will form a mini capsule wardrobe so that they can make a number of outfits from the 3 base outfits supplied and should keep them looking work ready for a number of weeks until they can afford to buy additional items when they get their 1st pay packet.
We are still absolutely on the look out for both donations of clothing  and volunteers to work as dressers and mentors/coaches.  Any advice on grants available to help us pay for a permanent base would also be very useful.
