Swap your way to a new wardrobe!

Need an incentive to clear out your wardrobe? Here it is a chance to clear out your wardrobe, bag a bargain and raise money for a local charity.

On Tuesday 25thSeptember at 7.00pm, The West of England MS Therapy Centre in Bradley Stoke will open its doors for the first time ever for a ‘swishing’ event.

Swishing is a fun and social way of encouraging people to make the most of what they’ve got hanging in their wardrobe, sitting in a drawer or packed away in a box.

We all love clothes! The average household owns approximately £4,000 worth of clothing, 30% of which have not been worn in the past year. Estimates put the value of this unused clothing at around £30 billion. So why not start to get some of that value back and add some new glamour to your wardrobe?

How to proceed?

  • Clear through your wardrobe (good quality clothes, shoes, bags, accessories)
  • Drop donations off at the MS Therapy Centre by the 24thSeptember
  • Purchase your ‘swishing’ ticket (in the centre or through Eventbrite)
  • Attend the event and leave with a new wardrobe!

Tickets are £15 and include a glass of sparkly and some nibbles, mini pamper from the Clarins Beauty Team and 3 tokens to exchange for items (additional tokens may be purchased on the night).

We already have items available for ‘swishing’ from Boden, White Stuff, Ralph Lauren, Monsoon, M&S. There will also be an auction on the night for a small selection of high end items.

Only have old, worn items that are fit for recycling rather than swapping? No problem, we are also taking these for a recycling collection on Thursday 13thSeptember. Just drop clothes, shoes, bags and belts of any quality down to us at the centre and purchase your ‘swishing’ ticket at the same time.

Tickets are limited so don’t delay! For more information contact [email protected]   If you have trouble getting donations to the centre, local pick-ups can be arranged.

The West of England MS Therapy Centre based in Bradley Stoke has been caring for people with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions, their families and carers since 1985 and all proceeds from the ‘swishing’ event goes directly to the MS Centre to benefit the users.
