“The charity does really important work locally and around the globe, and all of us at Computershare in Derry are really pleased to help those in our local community who need an outfit.

“What a great way for us all to honour International Women’s Day.”

In total the collection included 28 tops, 11 dresses, seven suits, six pairs of shoes, four pairs of trousers, four scarves, three skirts, three blazers, two coats, two handbags and a belt.
