Swap shop helps parents get Sorted
PARENTS in Coventry have been swapping their children’s clothes at a community event.
The day was hosted by the Sorted project which works to improve the financial confidence of people living in social housing.
As well as holding the clothes swap, Sorted hosted demonstrations on how to adapt clothes and customise cheap everyday items like plain T-shirts.
The event, which was held at the organisation’s base in Little Park Street, was open to anyone who had clothes in good condition that they wanted to swap.
Sabir Zazai, Sorted programme manager, said: “At Sorted, we like nothing more than coming up with innovative ideas to save money and the environment.
“We got the idea from our school days, when we loved to swap things with our friends, so we decided to bring it back.
“Thanks to the generous donations, we were able to collect more items than we could swap so there are still clothes available.”
