Bring out your pre-loved fash­ion

The Weekend Post - - News - DANAELLA WIVELL danaella.wivell@news.com.au

THE quest to raise funds for the Cairns com­mu­nity has never been quite so stylish.

To­mor­row’s Your Wardrobe Cairns event will bring pre-loved fash­ion to the Cairns Show­ground in the city’s largest pop-up re­cy­cled fash­ion event.

Or­gan­iser Kay Judd said the event would also raise funds for two char­i­ties close to the com­mu­nity’s heart, FNQ Cere­bral Palsy and the Project Booyah youth men­tor­ing pro­gram.

The event has pre­vi­ously raised more than $5000 for Ruth’s Women’s Shel­ter and The Py­jama Foundation.

“Your Wardrobe Cairns is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for in­di­vid­u­als to up­date their wardrobe while at the same time give back to the com­mu­nity and con­trib­ute to a sus­tain­able en­vi­ron­ment,” she said.

“We truly value our on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship within the Cairns com­mu­nity and are proud that we can fa­cil­i­tate an ac­tiv­ity that helps in­di­vid­u­als and the com­mu­nity as a whole.

“Your Wardrobe Cairns is a great way for res­i­dents to sell and re­cy­cle their pre-loved cloth­ing, per­haps for the first time and re­ceive a lit­tle thankyou for their ef­forts in sup­port­ing a char­i­ta­ble cause and the en­vi­ron­ment.”

Your Wardrobe Cairns will run this Sun­day at the Fred Moule Pav­il­ion. Gates open at 9am and en­try re­quires a gold coin do­na­tion.

Any­one want­ing to take part in the clothes sale can con­tact Kay Judd at lit­tlekay1@hot­mail.com.
