From 1-3pm on Saturday 26 April at Eccles Town Hall, Mustard Tree will be holding our first ever Swishing event.
For those of you who haven’t heard of swishing, it can be described as a sustainable, eco-friendly, and fun way to simultaneously update your wardrobe and get rid of your unwanted clothes. Whether you’ve been stockpiling shoes or hoarding hoodies, this is the time to do something about it.
When you come to our event, bring along any clothes you no longer wear, like, or have a use for (just make sure they’re clean and presentable) and you can exchange them for clothes brought by other people. We’ll give you one raffle ticket for every item of clothing you provide, and you can exchange this ticket for another item of your choice.
Entry to the event will cost only £1 and all proceeds will go to Mustard Tree. Any of your items of clothing that don’t get picked will be donated to our shops, unless you would prefer to keep them, in which case just let us know and we’ll give them back to you at the end of the event.
Set up by London-based Futerra, swishing has become popular over the last few years, with events being held across the country. It’s been covered in Vogue and Grazia, and even featured on the Radio 4’s the Archers last year.
