Trainees aid charity

Have your say

An innovative charity shop which helps retail apprentices to gain practical experience has raised £3,000 for local charity Autism Plus.

First In Best Dressed is the brainchild of The Source Skills Academy and also has backing from Sheffield City Council and the Skills Funding Agency.

The store opened in an empty city centre shop last September and has been a fantastic success, according to manager David Webber.

Mr Webber said: “The Sheffield community has been really generous with making donations and we would like the next charity’s cheque to be even bigger, so please keep donating.”

Now First In Best Dressed is asking Sheffield residents to nominate other charities for the shop to support over the next two years.
