Wednesday’s, the one day of the week that I can guarantee will be a success. Why? It’s the day I volunteer at Barnardo’s. My friend introduced me to the idea of volunteering about seven months ago and I can honestly say I’m having the best experience!
My manager Leanne and I hit it off immediately. So much so when I heard she was moving stores, I followed her. I was given the exciting role of creating fun window displays to draw the public in.

We’d love to know which were your favourite looks of the day… Was it one of our outlandish colour riot Ryan Lo recreations, or maybe our take on Jasper Conran? Tell us in the comments over on instagram @charityfashionlive or give us a shout on @CharityFashLive on twitter – we’re dying to know!!
Be sure to check out our short fashion film for a sneaky peak behind the scenes and all the runway fun on the day!
