A Cambuslang shop which is giving old clothes a new lease of life is extending its opening hours.
R:evolve Recycle on Cambuslang Main Street sees clothes, often repaired or ‘upcycled’, exchanged for points, which people earn by donating their own unwanted garments.
Run by Lightburn Elderly Association Project, it is a money-free outlet which opened just one year ago.
But having grown in popularity and become known amongst locals as a treasure trove for fashion lovers, R:evolve has decided to open on Saturdays.
The store, which is run by volunteers, will open between 10am and 2pm to make the most of weekend trading.
The R:evolve store is run alongside an ongoing commitment to bridging the gap between the ‘make do and mend’ generation and the youth of today.
The charity is bridging the gap in skills by hosting workshops whereby older people teach others how to sew and modify clothing to ensure a longer life in people’s wardrobes.
It is continuing to take requests for spaces at the in demand workshops and add names to waiting lists in case of cancellations.
People can enquire about workshop availability by calling 0141 641 5169, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
