Local Hero

I first heard of Vicky’s amazing fundraising quest through going to Vintage Village in Stockport as we are both regular visitors. In order to Raise money for Oldham Cancer Support Vicky didn’t buy any clothes for a year.

Yes, you read correctly- 365 days of no new clothes- or second hand. Absolutely no accessories either!

You can read more about her challenge and see her 365 outfits over at her blog Sewabee

She has raised over £5000 so far and the donations are still coming in….

Here she is putting her feet up and relaxing…

… And reading Company magazine, in which, there is an article all about her challenge, and bless her leopard print converse, she’s given Old Fashioned Susie a mention! Whoop Whoop! Thanks Vicky!

    What a great thing to do. My darling grandma died of Ovarian Cancer 2 years ago in the Royal Oldham after being treated for years at Christie’s. I still miss her every day.
