St. Paul’s Church is planning a Harvest Clothes Swish event, to support homeless charities CentrePoint and The Children’s Society.
If you’ve never heard of Clothes Swishing, this is a term used when people decide to swap their good quality, clean, well-laundered but unwanted clothes, while making a charitable donation.
You are invited to go through your wardrobes and drawers and find all the good clothes which you haven’t worn for years or are too big or small for you, or you’d simply like to change. Be ruthless and create a large pile, and then deliver them, laundered and on hangers, to the Clothes Swish organiser, Anne Vincent.
Two sales will be held – firstly at St. Paul’s School where children’s clothes will be included, and secondly a public sale at St. Paul’s Church at 2pm on Saturday 5th October.
All money raised will help homeless children, and any clothes remaining unsold will be donated to the Salvation Army to support their work with local homeless adults and families.
So Get Sorting, and let’s Swish!
