New hours

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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 caro­line@leap-project.co.uk.
