Charity Clothes Swap
When: Thursday 12 March, 16:00-20:00
Where: North Gallery, The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Digbeth, B9 4AA
Two students are spearheading a charity clothes swap event, taking place at the Custard Factory next week in aid of St Basil’s charity.
Stall holders on the day include St Basil’s, ECO, Trunk Junkies, and Krispy Kreme. All attendees are asked to pay £3 on the door and bring a bag of unwanted clothing, which will be valued and exchanged for tokens to spend at the event. If you don’t have any clothes to swap – don’t panic! – you can also buy tokens for cash.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to St Basil’s, with any leftover clothing gifted to the British Heart Foundation (as St Basil’s do not accept clothing donations). In addition, the volunteers selected by St Basil’s to help at the event will have their time recognised as work experience, and will also receive references to be used on their CVs to boost their employability for future job interviews.
