Mary Portas V Day
Real life mannequin: Three 'senior citizens' modelling in the window of House of Fraser on Oxford Street a couple of days ago. Filming with Mary Portas for the new series of Queen of Charity Shops.
The V Day campaign aimes to encourage everyone to volunteer at their local charity shop, encourage donation and consumption of second hand clothing.
As a result of this I will spend some time volunteering at my local charity shop - The Salvation Army.
