Shake up your wardrobe and SWISH!

24 Sep 2014

Following on from the success of the last event; Wednesday 5th November (12:30 – 1:30pm) will see the seasonal Rutherford ‘Swish’ (Clothes Swap) in the Rutherford Room

For all of you who are updating your Autumn/Winter wardrobe or clearing out your Summer threads - don’t throw them away; save them for the 5th November and “swish” them for other pre-loved items!

Admission £2 if you bring items, £3 if you do not, proceeds to be shared between the Wood Street Mission and Cornerstone Homeless Charity. 

How does it work?

You bring along any good quality items of clothing which you no longer wear/use (handbags, shoes, tops and dresses etc), you pay a donation which goes to a good cause, and you can help yourself to any items which colleagues have brought in which take your fancy! 
Any leftover items of clothing will be donated to the Wood Street Mission/Cornerstone, and will be put to good use by local families. Please feel free to also bring in items to be donated straight to charity, they are always in need of good quality children's & young adult clothing, baby equipment, bedding and toiletries. 
Feel free to pass this information onto friends and colleagues who might be interested, and if anyone would like to volunteer to help me down after, or take the donations to Cornerstone/Wood Street, extra pairs of hands are most appreciated!
