I am using this blog post to un-ashamedly plug a charity event that I am organising with a friend in Bristol.
A friend and I are organising a charity Swishing Event called Swish ‘n’ Swap on Wednesday 19 August at Ashton Gate Stadium, Ashton Gate, Bristol from 7pm – 10pm.
For those of you that are new to Swishing – it’s basically a clothes swapping party, combining ethical shopping, bargain hunting and having a good time and meeting new people! All you need to do is bring at least 1 piece of QUALITY clothing/shoes/accessories (you are welcome to bring more of course!) – emphasis is more on quality and less on quantity. Not so much bring the bag of clothes you were going to drop off at the charity shop and more bring an item that you might be reluctant to give away but has been sat in the wardrobe for a year or more because you never wear it, but can’t quite bring yourself to give it away to charity shop! That way the quality of stuff will be pretty high – hopefully!!! Oh, and please bring your clothes on a hanger! You then get to take home whatever you want – no pulling hair, biting or scratching allowed!
Tickets are £12.50 including welcome drink and nibbles, booked in advance only. All money raised from ticket sales and other fundraising activities on the night will be donated to the Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal Charity which is the only charity fundraising exclusively for the Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (Special Care Baby Unit) to provide comforts and facilities for patients and their families.
You can book your place online now for the swish ‘n’ swap event – tickets must be booked in advance
Please tell your partners and friends if you think they might like to come along! The more we can raise for the charity the better and the more people that come along the better the choice of clothes for everyone!
