Jan. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- January can be a hard month for anyone after Christmas, but none more so than the homeless. That's why Manchester Shopfitters Clarke Gough, Mustard Tree and the Manchester Arndale have brought to UK an award winning open source charity event. This new event is aimed specifically at raising awareness of homelessness in Manchester.

The charity event is named The Empty Shop and will be situated in the centre of Manchester Arndale. This location makes it easy for the general public to come and donate their spare clothes to The Empty Shop. Stylist, fashion bloggers and other people form within the fashion industry will then select items from the donated clothes to make stunning new outfits. At the days end, the clothes are then distributed throughout Manchester to homeless people in need.

The Mustard Tree will be collecting donations at the site throughout the days and evenings. They will also use good quality donations to sell in their own stores so they can raise even more money to fund other initiatives for helping the homeless in Manchester.

The CEO of Mustard Tree Adrian Nottingham is quoted as saying: “Mustard Tree is delighted to be participating in this innovative project. We are proud that Manchester is taking a lead in seeking to broker practical solutions and raise awareness of the plight of the increasing number of its residents facing homelessness and marginalization”. Such a great charity.

The event will last ten days and gives the general public the opportunity not just to help out by donating their clothes, but by starting a new chapter with us, bringing fashion and homelessness together.

The event lauches on the 23rd of January at 2pm with a media launch where the press will be present and the event getting a celebrity launch.
