Join us for a Super Duper Charity event!

March 4th is Aplastic Anaemia Awareness Day, let’s raise lots of money for the only UK charity dedicated to this very rare disease. I’m fundraising in memory of my amazing mum, Lynne Sweeney. (1938-2011)

See you there!
Claire Cross

We're so proud to be hosting a swish for our lovely friend Claire at her awesome event!
Join us on Sunday the 4th of March from 12pm to 4pm at The Trades Hall in Walthamstow.
Here's the address: 
61-63 Tower Hamlets Road, E17 4RQ Walthamstow, United Kingdom

Claire is organising a charity event in aid of the Apalstic Anaemia Trust and we're so happy to be able to give her a hand!
But the swish is only one part of it...
There will also be loads more happening like stalls selling hand made goods, second hand items, vegan food -including chocolates!- a kids craft table, a pop up hair salon run by Claire Hair (no need to book), DJ's spinning tunes (yes we expect some dancing!), a raffle, and lots more including a cheap bar!!! 
So mark it in your diary and come along to help us raise lots of cashola for this amazing charity and help us raise a glass as well to all the wonderful people & their families who's lives have been affected by aplastic anaemia.
Entry is free to this family friendly event, all welcome!
"Swish", how it works:

This swish will run from 12pm to 3pm. 
We'll be taking clothing and apparel between 12pm and 2pm.
It costs £5 to participate. Though there is no minimum amount of items there is a maximum of 6 items allowed per swish entry.
If you would like to bring more than 6 items you can though an additional £5 will be charged and you can bring up to another 6 items! FYI, you can bring as much as you like ;)

You will be given a ticket which corresponds to the type of item you have brought in to swap (ie shoes, high st clothing, vintage etc.) Please keep this ticket as you will need to show it at the end of the swish.
Just make your way to the Swish area and hand in your items to the Swish Mistress. You'll then receive a swish card with your tickets.
We'll be accepting items between 12 and 2 pm.

At 2 pm we'll open the newly filled "wardrobe" area. You'll then have an hour to browse and try anything that catches your eye!
And finally at 3 pm you will be able to swap your ticket for a similar type item when the swish begins!

*Please note that all items must be in a clean and wearable condition. Please wash, mend and press anything before bringing it along. 
We will not accept certain items: No fur or pelt!
At the end of the swish we ask that participants help us by taking back any of their items that weren't swapped.

Fashion, fund raising and recycling …we LOVE it!
