Give a homeless person a new suit.......

NWTV was invited to a fashion show with top singers dancers, a signing choir, lots of sexy models and homeless people!

PRLog - Oct. 18, 2012 - WIRRAL, U.K. -- Homelessness can happen to you and me, it's not a poor disease it's a fact of life. 13,130  applicants were accepted as homeless in UK during January to March 2012, 16 per cent higher than the same quarter last year.

Homelessness is not a personal failing, it is in fact more often caused by a complex interplay between a person's personal circumstances, and adverse 'structural' factors, outside that person's direct control.

One such charity in Liverpool called Chapter 1 runs a supported housing project called Milmay House giving over 50 men a residential hostel with support to find faith in themselves, and get back into the community through tireless help through link workers.

NWTV met three compassionate and dedicated people at The Liverpool Marina Bar and Grill on the 27th June 2012: Yvonne Rogers, Barbara Smith and Kathy de Cossy who are so proud to be  associated with the young men from Mildmay House. So much so they organised a Fashion show and concert given to over 50 guests.

The 'lads'were dressed to the nines:
"It was to illustrate that if you put one of our Mildmay residents, who would usually struggle to think about high fashion when they are rebuilding their lives, in designer suits, you would not know that they had been impoverished at any time"
Barbara told us.

We were stunned by how dapper the gents looked in morning suits, and the 'Summer collection'. They were accompanied by some very fine looking young ladies who escorted the men across the stage.

If we had just turned up and not known anything about the concert participants, we would have expected to see Ferraris and Paparazzi outside.

During the show and we were also treated to some great live music from some of the residents and friends of Mildmay. Mildmay has a recording studio where residents can learn some valuable skills like mixing and music publishing.

What made the show really poignant was  the Liverpool signing choir who gave us a fantastic show and finale with 'You'll never walk alone' and 'Imagine' together with all the residents on stage.

We interviewed some of the people at Chapter 1 who were behind the concert and fashion show, and residents at the reception party, and they all come from very different backgrounds, and they all seemed to be beaming with pride at the ovation they were given at the end of the show, and just like you and me, the feeling of belonging and acceptance is so important to people.

What we learned from the evening was to look beyond how people are dressed and make an impression based on knowing someone not their clothes. And to remember;

"We don't know where our first impressions come from, or precisely what they mean, so we don't always appreciate their fragility."
Malcolm Gladwell
