Have you got a wardrobe full to bursting and only wear a handful of items?
Not just your clothes, but your families clothes too?!
School uniforms, old party dresses, everyday clothing that you don’t fit into, or you just don’t feel good in anymore?
Feel like you don’t know what to do with it all and you really don’t want to put it in the bin?
We have just the solution for you, it’ll save you money and help keep it all out of landfill.
School Uniform Exchange and Family Clothes Swaps!
In fact we’ve just had our 2nd Clothes Swap of the year last weekend, accompanied by Sam’s delicious carrot and honey soup.
So sorry if you missed it. Don’t worry we’ll be hosting lots more!
It was quite a quiet night, but we were competing with the glorious summer sunshine we’ve been having! Nevertheless we rehomed 4.79kg of clothes during the course of the evening, and there is still a rail full of kids and adults clothes still up for grabs.
We also welcomed a brand new volunteer into our team, the lovely Sarah! She and we are very excited to have her enthusistic reuse and upcycling skills to share with you all in the coming months.
From August onwards we will be hosting a monthly Clothes Swap at Pop-Up Beacon or the GCDT office. Dates to be confirmed.
If you would like to volunteer with us as a maker, repairer or upcycler of things, especially but not exclusive to textiles/clothing please email Jaimie on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our School Uniform exchange is continuing from it’s success in 2017/18.
We have been asking for donations from families across Gorebridge and Midlothian to donate their outgrown and unwanted school items to us so that they can find a new home in the new school year. Stobhill Primary have had another wonderful collection for us at the school before the holidays.
Between Stobhill donations and people popping in to the office with bags we have collected 29.96kg of uniforms so far.
If you have some school uniforms to pass on, you can donate to us at the Trust Office (58 Main Street) Monday-Friday 10-4pm. or you can come along to the Community Recycling Project at Gorebridge Parish Church Hall on the 1st tuesday of each month to donate or pick up school uniform items. 9:30-11am
