Save your purse – and the planet – at the latest Bramley Community Clothing Exchange
Lyrics: Vickie Jamieson
The Bramley Community Clothing Exchange will take place next Saturday, February 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bramley Community Centre.
It’s only £3 entry, kids go free. Bring clothes you don’t wear and swap them for whatever you want. Save your purse and the planet at the same time.
We raise money for Leeds Baby Bank – so all profits will go to them. Leeds Baby Bank is a volunteer-run charity based in Leeds that takes referrals for essential hygiene products and equipment for 0-5 year olds and pregnant women in need.
The bank aims to partner with the local community by donating pre-loved essentials from one family to another.
In this way, they share the same sustainability philosophy as Clothing Swap and play their own part in reducing landfills and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.
The bank has seen referrals double from 500 to 1,000 in 2021 alone, with a sharp reduction in charitable trust income over the same period, so additional funding is vital. Right now they are in particular need of toddler beds and strollers for newborns. We will therefore also collect them if you have any in stock.
The Leeds Inner West School Uniform Swap will also be in attendance, so pick up or drop off school uniforms and gym supplies (no entry fee for Uniform Swap use only) .
There will be the usual tea, coffee, rolls and biscuits, so feel free to stick around for a cup of tea and a chat.
The volunteers included a book swap at the last event which was very popular, so there will be a book swap booth again this month.
Participants can bring books that you have completed and want to exchange for books or clothes.
