About this organisation

Gladrags Community Costume Resource provides equal access to costumes and related resources to community, educational and therapeutic based groups, and in this way supports and enriches their work. The costume store is run by volunteers, and as our work gains momentum, the Project Manager needs help with the organisational/ day to day running of the charity.
