Hometown glory

The whole world is in crisis it seems if the constant bombardment of grim news stories are to be believed. Knowing what and how is the best way to help people can seem so overwhelming to say the least but we say start at home……..and do it by shopping for something super stylish…….it’s a win win in our eyes!

Homelessness is all around us and continues to gain bad press with the media pretty much labelling all people living on the street as scroungers. So take away all doubt that your money is being used in the correct way and buy a Hometown Glory sweatshirt. The brainchild of the fabulous Sara at the gorgeous Violet Store in Harrogate you get to take home a super stylish sweatshirt while knowing that a percentage of the purchase price goes to a homeless project in that area.

The original HGTE sweatshirt has been knocking about for a few years, I shared a knowing smile with a fellow wearer in The Alps recently, but has now been rolled out to towns and cities across the UK.

So come on, do what we do best and either drop into the Harrogate store for a sweatshirt (and reworked Levi’s) or jump on line here and do your bit today.
