Cloth­ing to swap

Central Leader - - News -

Fol­low­ing on from Fe­bru­ary’s suc­cess, bar­gain hun­ters are in­vited to a sec­ond Swap-a-Cloth event this week­end.

Armed with $5 and a bag of clean pre-loved clothes, swap­pers can take home a new wardrobe.

The fam­ily-friendly fundraiser, which in­cludes badge-mak­ing and home­bak­ing, runs from 9am to noon on Satur­day.

Clothes will be sorted into cat­e­gories for pa­trons to rum­mage through just in time for win­ter.

Swap-a-Cloth is hosted by the Auck­land Free Space Com­mu­nity Group, which is rais­ing money to es­tab­lish a new com­mu­nity space in Auck­land.

The event aims to as­sist peo­ple with an af­ford­able way to re­vi­talise their wardrobe, in the spirit of reusing and re­cy­cling, says or­gan­iser Claire Dann.

“The last Swap-a-Cloth was just amaz­ing, it was a fun com­mu­nity event all about reusing rather than buy­ing new, and the funds raised are go­ing back into the neigh­bour­hood.”

Leftover clothes will be do­nated to a wor­thy cause and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Swap-a-Cloth is at 8a Mt Eden Rd, op­po­site the Pow­er­sta­tion.
