Frock swap makes cash
Everyone went home with someone else’s clothes. That’s the word following the Frock-Swap fundraiser for Boomerang Bags.
The Frock-Swap fundraiser was away to further the cause of Boomerang Bags. Described as a ‘for the people, by the people’ initiative to reduce the use of plastic bags, Boomerang Bags is a nonprofit community project which sews reusable fabric shopping bags for the community. The fundraiserwill help pay for additional sewing machine needles and other resources.
Organiser Jizzy Green said getting 40 women in a room full of pre-loved clothing with a couple of bottles ofwine and some nibbles was a recipe for success.
“There was much laughter, chatting, trying on and socialising, while they all rifled thought the piles of clothes on offer. Everyone got to take home awhole new set of pre-loved clothes, and a few generous spot prizes.”
The Frock Swap event raised $200 that will be used to help createmore bags.
Six wooden stands that all stock these bags are in the Katikati village and free to use.
