Friday 2nd August 2019, 6.30pm until 9pm
Tickets for the event support the charity’s vital conservation work and cost £10 per person. People are asked to donate between 4 and 10 items of clothing and will be able to take home a new outfit of the same number of items. The event includes drinks, nibbles, fashion tips, raffle and more, all while being sustainable.
A global study in 2018 by removals company Movinga found that most people do not wear 50 per cent of the clothes in their wardrobes, with UK citizens being amongst the worst for having clothes they haven’t worn for a year.
Environment Trust encourages clothes donations to be dropped at the ETNA Centre, 13 Rosslyn Rd, St Margaret’s in Twickenham, TW1 2AR ahead of the event, kindly named if participating and, if possible, on hangers.
Clothes for all the ages and genders welcome, and donated clothes should be washed and in good condition. Clothes will also be accepted on the night and additional items welcome for a ‘to purchase’ rack.
