Fed-up of your flip-flops? Tired of your top, time to make a swap? There’s a local event just for you this Sunday.
Following on from two very successful Clothes Swap days in April and May this year, the Torch Theatre is pleased to be offering another such event this Sunday, July 23, starting at 2pm.
For those of you who aren’t that sure what a Clothes Swap event actually entails, it’s an event open to all where people can exchange their clean items of clothing for some other used clothing in order to promote sustainable consumption, and it won’t cost you a penny!
Clothes Swap events first appeared post World War II when people couldn’t afford to buy new clothes, and they have really taken off over the past few years.
Torch Theatre’s Senior Manager for Youth and Community Tim Howe said:“Our Clothes Swap events have been so popular so far that we've decided to introduce a bi-monthly event in our fabulous Joanna Field Gallery here at the Torch Theatre. These events are for all to enjoy and to help our planet.”
“Community Clothes Swaps such as these can encourage socialising and relationship building bringing Pembrokeshire people together under one roof and where better place to host it than at the welcoming Torch Theatre. So come browse our clothes and see what other treats we have available. Perhaps a drink of your choice from our kiosk or see what’s on in our cinema – make an afternoon of it!”
The Torch Theatre will accept pre-loved children’s and adult’s clothes, shoes and accessories, and as long as you bring something along you can swap it for something else. So make sure you remember to be in Milford Haven this Sunday afternoon, July 23!
Torch Theatre is a registered charity and as a non-for-profit organisation, relies on the generous support of donors to continue providing for our community with events such as this clothes swap. If you are interested in supporting them, call 01646 695267.
