Good Sorts: The doctor turning clothes into cash for local school

Mon, Mar 27

This week's Good Sort is Blenheim doctor Martina Suleiman.

When Covid put a stop to her local school's fundraising gala, Suleiman figured out a way to raise just as much money without leaving her living room.

"Just random donations and sometimes I don't find out where they come from," she said.

So she went to work, putting surgical precision into her re-styling of the clothes.

She sells the results on Facebook at affordable prices, and the money goes to the local school.
