Maria Macnamara MBE – Founder

[ – ]
[ + ]
Maria Macnamara MBE, conceived and launched Smalls for All in 2009. Maria worked in financial services for 30 years and has been a children’s respite carer since 1997. In 2004 she decided to try a different kind of holiday and spent three weeks working with children in an orphanage in Brazil. This encouraged her to volunteer to work in Thailand in 2006 and Ethiopia in 2009.

It was following her experience in Ethiopia that she decided to set up Smalls for All.

In 2015 Maria was recognised as an inspirational volunteer and awarded a Point of Light Award by the Prime Minister. “Maria’s work will have had an immediate impact on the daily lives of thousands of women and I am delighted to recognise her service with this Point of Light Award.” Points of Life are outstanding individual volunteers – people who are making a change in their community. In 2016 Maria was honoured with an MBE.

Alan McCormick – Chairman

Alan spent the majority of his career in the Aerospace and Defence industry. At the age of 50 he moved into the third sector and took on responsibility for Mission Direct, a Christian charity that builds schools, medical facilities, safe houses and homes for some of our world’s poorest in 11 countries round the world. He is passionate about supporting the vulnerable and those living on the edge.

Smalls for All captured his heart after he witnessed the amazing impact that giving someone their own underwear can have. Underwear not only restores dignity it allows the street kids to go swimming in public places, play football etc, etc.

Smalls for All
“My daughter died recently and I know she would have wanted her things to be given to help others,” Ann’s message says. It’s always hard to read notes like this enclosed with donations of bras and unused/unopened packs of pants. Lots of donations come from people grieving for a loved one – a special thanks to them for thinking about us at a time when they’re dealing with such loss. To find out more, please see www.smallsforall.org. Why will you donate? Maria 🩲💸🙏 ... See MoreSee Less

Smalls for All
“I’ve got lots of lovely bras I can’t wear anymore and I hate to see them go to waste,” Tracy’s note says. We’re so glad she thought of us. This is just one of the reasons people donate to Smalls. All the bras and brand new pants we receive help people in Africa and the UK who can’t afford or can’t get any, while also reducing the amount of perfectly good items that go to landfill.
