The Big Wotton Pre-loved Clothes Swish : 7:30 - 9:30pm

£5 to include a glass of fizz

Following on from #secondhandseptember, the Wotton Community Climate Action Group challenges you to say NO to new clothes! We think Vintage is Best and more sustainable so start sorting your clothes now and put any mistakes to one side ready for then.

What is swishing?
You bring the things in your wardrobe that are not quite your colour, not a good fit or not really your style.The items you look at but never wear! Items that you would happily give to a friend. They could be clothing, shoes, scarves, hats or bags. You donate them and hopefully find other things to take home which make your heart sing.

How does it work?
You bring a maximum of ten quality, clean items that you are ready to pass on. Scarves are welcome too for our lucky dip but they don't count as one of your ten items. Please bring items on hangers if you can (you'll take things home on hangers).

You'll receive one raffle ticket per item, this is your "money".

Enjoy a glass of fizz ( or non-alcoholic alternative) while we sort the donations. Garments will be sorted into warm and cool colours as well as sizes.
You can look at the garments during this time but no trying on yet!!

When all the sorting completed, try on time starts! If you'd like an item, you exchange one of your raffle tickets per item. It's great fun, if two of you like the same item, decide who looks best in it?

Then there will be a free for all period when you can take what you want from what's left. Any left over items will be taken to the local charity shops in Wotton.

What happens if you donate an amazing item but do not find something you want?
This is about letting go and giving garments a chance to be loved. We hope you'll find something you love, if not, watch the fun and enjoy a chat (and the bubbly).

Pre-booking is essential so we can accommodate numbers.
