Hobbs X Smart Works

Donate your pre-loved clothing to the women's charity, Smart Works. A charity that exists to give women the confidence they need to reach their full potential, secure employment and change the trajectory of their lives.

We believe every woman should feel empowered to succeed – and clothing can make all the difference.

International Women's Day

Starting Monday 4th March, Hobbs have a display and rail in-store for customers to drop off their pre-loved items and get the chance to enter into a raffle to win two £50 Hobbs Gift Cards. The competition is running until 8th March, and donations are accepted during store opening hours.

What should I donate?

Smart Works is always looking for high-quality, work appropriate womenswear. So any smart coats, tailored blazers, shirts or chic dresses would be perfect. The charity also accepts smart shoes and handbags. Remember, all donations need to be in near-perfect condition.

How do I make a donation?

Once in store, let one of the team know you'd like to make a donation. You will then be invited to complete a personal message to the woman who will receive your item/s. It's not obligatory – it's just a chance to pass on your story and inspire the next owner.
