Please be advised that due to an incredible response from generous locals the Grenfell Voices against Violence Committee have had to change the venue of their upcoming ‘Clothes Swap’ fundraiser to the Grenfell Uniting Church Hall. 

Everything else remains the same.

They are seeking quality used clothing for their fundraiser to be held on April 11.

The committee would like you to drop them at the Grenfell Community Health by March 09. 

The fundraiser will take place at the Uniting Church Hall on Wednesday April 11 from 9.30am – 12 noon with a guest speaker at 10.30am.

Cost for the morning is $10 which includes a free morning tea and you get to choose five items of clothing.

Funds raised will support projects raising awareness of Domestic Violence in the Weddin Shire. Items left over will be donated to Women’s Refuges in Forbes and Young and local Charities

This is the perfect opportunity to finally let go of all the fabulous pieces you haven’t been wearing so that someone else can love and wear them! In exchange, you can pick up some new pieces for your wardrobe!

This event is for ALL dress sizes.

How the swap works:

1.  Drop off all the clothes you no longer wear to Grenfell Community Health by March 9, 2018.

2.  At the end of the swap, items left over will be donated to Women’s Refuges in Forbes and Young and local Charities.

Swap guidelines:  Women’s and Children’s clothing

What to bring: dresses, pants, skirts, tops, shoes, bags, scarves, hats, jewellery.

What NOT to bring: earrings, swimwear, underwear, pyjamas.

Clothes must be clean and in a condition that’s not too heavily worn or too damaged. (Good quality like something you could give to a friend)

Grenfell Voices Against Violence Committee look forward to seeing you in April.
