Make do, not spend … a year in the life of a wardrobe
From December 2010 – December 2011 I did two things in the name of Oldham Cancer Support Centre! (oldhamcancersupport.org.uk)
1) I bought no new clothes – including shoes, bags, accessories of any sort;
2) I wore a different outfit every day.
Each month I donated £60 to the cause and encouraged people to sponsor me. My challenge resulted in £6,000 raised for Oldham Cancer Support Centre.
