Isolated Heroes Social Impact - Working With Charities

We get asked a lot to work with different charities and over the last year we have amped-up our charity work and given back to our local communities. In November  2017 we launched our "GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS" Sequin sweaters where 10% of each sweater sale was donated direct to a Women's Refuge charity. In December last year we launched our first Christmas charity campaign alongside our first kidswear collection. The results of this campaign were phenomenal and we were so proud at being able to donate funds to our local NCT Neonatal unit at Ninewells Hospital with £5 of every sequin sweater sale going direct to the hospital.
In 2018 Isolated Heroes decided to focus our sole attention on one local charity Kindred Clothing. Kindred Clothing is a DIY fashion group teaching young and vulnerable mothers in Dundee how to make clothing for their children. We have worked alongside the charity publicly supporting their campaign which resulted in Kindred clothing receiving £34,488 of National Lottery Funding. Over the year we have led a series of skills based workshops with the mothers in the group teaching them how to create their own Sequin pieces and garments for their children showing embellishment and embroidery skills.
