This month's winner of the business card draw was Suzie Rawcliffe, Clarity Otrganising.
Professional move manager Suzie Rawcliffe runs Clarity Organising from her home in Newark and offers a decluttering service.
“People struggle with getting rid of items for all sorts of reasons,” she said.
“They can lack the motivation, don’t have the time or simply can’t face it.”
Suzie can help those who want to move home or simply tidy the house but find themselves stuck because they have amassed piles of items in drawers, sheds, garages and attics.
She can also help those who need to clear a property because of a bereavement.
“I can look from an outside point of view and give a different perspective".
Suzie works by organising paperwork into categories — documents that are obviously important, old bills that could be discarded, and photographs that need to be sorted.
“I am able to give people support in making a start and motivating them,” she said.
Suzie can also help people whose rooms are so full of furniture they have become hazardous.
“I can streamline a house so it makes it easier for them to move around,” she said.
Suzie came up with the decluttering idea through her contact with families seeking her help with funeral planning — a service she still offers.
Suzie, who is also a Dementia Friend Champion, said it was important that people thought ahead and planned their funeral for financial reasons and to provide support for the family at a time of need.
She has recently started working with Newark Patriotic Fund to help ex-military personnel organise the process.
Susie is happy to do talks about her work to clubs or associations.
