Reporting on the March Swap and Mend
Next Swap and Mend Saturday 8th April,
Film ‘Tomorrow’ showing on Monday 24th April.
This month’s Swap & Mend was one of the busiest so far. Although the morning began and ended with a lot more stuff than we’ve seen of late, there was still a good turnover. Many items were bagged within moments of being donated. If you’ve never been before, you’d be amazed at what you can pick up. There’s always lots of books, toys,
electronics and kitchen equipment. This month we had at least 4 lawnmowers, a nearly new TV and a hunting horn.
Even if you don’t think you need anything, everyone loves to rummage and I challenge you to not leave empty-handed.
Jean and Rachel are our lovely sewing ladies who can mend and alter clothes so you don’t need to throw out your old favourites. Spadge and John can mend bicycles, electronics and electrical items. We also gained 2 new mending volunteers, both called Keith!
Thanks to all our volunteers who work hard to set up and clear away each month, and to all our ‘customers’ who generously donate goods and money.
