Local based Manchester charity Mustard Tree are best known for their plight in combatting homelessness and fighting poverty in the North West. As they get ready to open their new HQ on Oldham Street in just a few weeks’ time, Mustard Tree have teamed up with local Manchester businesses to further their fundraising efforts with a Charity Sample Sale.
Sophie Appleton, Corporate Partnerships Manager at the charity said:
“Mustard Tree exists because chronic poverty, extreme inequality and severe disadvantage is occurring across Greater Manchester. We help to create choice and opportunities through the provision of practical work experience, mentoring support, advocacy and recreational activities; enabling people to become active members of their communities rather than be excluded by it.”
E-commerce fast fashion company, Brand Attic have donated clothing from both their Menswear and Womenswear ranges to the charity.
Brand Attic PR Lead Jade Crerand said:
“It is vital that we support local charities like Mustard Tree, especially as homelessness is becoming more and more prevalent in Manchester. In donating the clothing that will be sold on to the public, we not only generate awareness for our brand but get to help the cause, with all proceeds from the sale going directly to the charity.”

“This sample sale is an amazing opportunity to spread the word about Mustard Tree in the local community, as well as to partner with local businesses. We are heavily reliant on funding from businesses and the money raised from this event will be a huge support to help us continue supporting those in need.
