Description

Welcome to the first Broomhill Gardens Climate Challenge Fund Swap Shop!

On Friday 27th September from 11am - 2pm, we will be holding a swap shop in the main hall of our Hub, opposite our cafe. On the day, you can pop in anytime with a maximum of 10 preloved items - clothes, shoes, toys, books, jewellery, etc. You can exchange your items for tokens. You will then get the chance to browse around for anything that catches your eye. One person's trash is another person's treasure, so they say! You can then exchange your tokens for items, and leave feeling happy that you've bagged yourself a bargain and saved some good items from going to landfill.

Our event ties in with National Recycling Week in the UK; swap shops promote a circular economy as they encourage customers to reduce, reuses and recycle. In our society, we are used to only buying new items and throwing old items away if they get damaged, and this contributes a massive amount to our carbon footprints. By repairing and reusing, we are saving items from being binned and giving them a new life, where they can be used to their full potential. You are also saving yourself some money, too - you might find a great Christmas present amongst the preloved treasures!

Please pop into our Hub for our Swap Shop event and remember to bring your items with you - no money will change hands at this event. Entrance is free but if you register your interest we can get an idea of how many stalls to provide on the day. We will accept any items, new or used, big or small, but they must be in a good enough condition that other customers can benefit from them. We will also accept donations from people who would like to give away their preloved items but aren't interested in attending the swap shop. Don't hesitate to ask any questions, and we look forward to seeing you then!
