Clothes swap raises cash and clothing for local charities

05 Nov 2014

The Rutherford Room was a-buzz this afternoon with the bi-annual Rutherford SWISH

Rutherford SWISH

The event, which sees colleagues donating and acquiring pre-loved clothing and accessories, raised £85 for two local charities* (Cornerstone and Mustard Tree Homeless Shelters). The money and left-over clothes (more than 15 bags of pre-loved shoes, clothing and accessories) will be split between the two charities, helping our neighbours to stay warmer this winter.

A huge thanks to everyone who took part: bring on the next one in spring 2015.
