Swap shop helps par­ents get Sorted

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.”
