A clothes swapping community is holding its inaugural event next Thursday, to raise money for local social enterprises.
People are invited to bring three items of their unwanted quality clothing to The Clothes Club, to swap them for other people’s unwanted garments.
Emily De Groot is behind the initiative said: “It’s a great way to inject some new life into your wardrobe, without spending lots of money, whilst reducing the environmental effects of the fashion industry and raising money for good causes.
“Lets help put some conscience into our closets.”
All profits from the first event will support Hackney Pirates, which helps children with one to one attention after school hours.
