Bags to Beauty 2018 - Upcycling the new rags to riches story

Don’t miss out

If you didn’t make it to our annual fashion event Bubbles & Beauties 2018 at City Hall you missed a great evening of fashion parades and designer pre-loved clothing and accessories.

At this years event we launched our new Tote Bags for sale. They are a great way to ensure we care for the environment by recycling. Visit our Tote Bag page on our web site to see all the history and how we are recycling.

The Bags Become a Beauty

Buying a bag helps to raise valuable funds to enable us to help more unemployed clients. By purchasing

  • one bag will provide a client with a Kick Start job search workshop resource

  • two bags will provide a client a Confidence Booster, mock interviews and resume consultation.

Please purchase your Limited Edition Tote Bag Now to help a client.
