Home > First in Best Dressed Charity Shop
The Source launched First In Best Dressed, an innovative charity shop, in September 2011.
Based on Cambridge Street, Sheffield, First In Best Dressed is a brand new charity shop that aims to develop apprentices by giving them practical experience of running a business as well as raising money for local charities.
A number of charities each gain for three months from the shop's profits and Autism Plus was the charity to benefit during the first quarter. First In Best Dressed is looking for charity nominations for the next two years from the residents of Sheffield, so please get in touch with your suggestions (contact details below).
Council Leader and supporter of the project, Julie Dore unveiled First in Best Dressed on 9th September. The project is supported by Sheffield City Council, the Skills Funding Agency and The Source Skills Academy.
Julie Dore said: "This is an excellent project, supporting local charities, young people and revitalising an empty unit in the city centre. By donating your unwanted items, you are providing the fuel to develop young people and raising vital funds for local charities. I'm sure people will be pleased with what First In Best Dressed has to offer; come down and take a look!"
Ann Cadman, Managing Director at The Source Skills Academy, said: "First In Best Dressed is an exciting new charity shop that not only supports local charities, but gives young people the opportunity to gain practical experience in a retail environment."
