Swap, don't landfill! Every year, a staggering 350,000 tonnes of wearable clothing ends up in UK landfills. We're saying enough is enough! Join us for a fun and sustainable Ladies Clothes Swap on Saturday March 9th and give your pre-loved garments a new lease on life.
Buy a ticket for £5 which includes participating in the clothes swap and a free coffee/ tea and cake on the day. All proceeds go to the charity Target Ovarian Cancer.
Between 13.00 – 13.30:
Bring up to 10 clean and gently used ladies clothing items to the Ping Pong Parlour in the Queensmere Shopping Centre. We welcome ladies clothes in all shapes, sizes, and styles, from high street finds to high-end gems. Just make sure they're in good condition and something you'd happily share with a friend.
(Sorry, no underwear, nightwear or swimwear!).
This swap is all about exchanging amazing clothes. To maximize space and selection, please leave accessories, bags, and shoes at home.
Exchange your treasures for tokens! Our friendly Swap Assistants will assess your items and assign them tokens based on their brand, RRP, and condition. One token for pre-loved pieces under £50, and two tokens for those over £50 in tip-top shape (these items will receive a special sticker).
While we wait for the rails to fill, enjoy refreshments, craft stalls, and
13.30 - 14.00:
Workshop 'Style and Resilience - harnessing your inner power'. Discover how your wardrobe choices can boost your confidence and resilience. Gain valuable insights from style & resilience coach’s Claire and Bep.
14.00 - 14.30:
Panel 'Inspire Inclusion in 2024'. Sbba gathers a powerhouse panel of women who are redefining what it means to be seen, heard, and empowered. Dive into their captivating perspectives on building a gender-balanced, diverse and inclusive world, and discover how fashion can be a potent catalyst for change.
Browse the rails and find your new favourites! Use your tokens to shop for pre-loved treasures from other swappers. From stylish tops to flowing dresses, discover hidden gems and give them a loving new home. Our swap assistants are happy to help in case of questions and changing rooms are available.
Swap closes at 16.30, so don't miss out!
Any left over items will be donated to the charity shop of Slough Outreach in Cippenham, giving them a second chance to bring joy to someone else.
