Even with the cold weather lots of people turned out either to bring ‘things’ in or to browse and take ‘things’ away.
Thanks for all who came along and to the helpers without whom it wouldn’t happen. Swap and Mends are run to keep ‘things’ out of landfill and re-home unwanted ‘things’. We can often feel that our small actions for a positive future are minuscule, but I think a quote from E.F.Schumacher (author of the book ‘Small is beautiful’) says it all really.
‘We must do what we conceive to be the right thing and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we’re going to be successful, because if we don’t do the right thing, we’ll just be doing the wrong thing and we’ll just be part of the disease and not part of the cure.’
A thought that might encourage us. Next Swap and Mend, Saturday 13th January 2018.
