Ladies Clothes Swap
Give preloved clothes a new life during this Ladies Clothes Swap event on Saturday 9 March in the Queensmere Shopping Centre.
350,000 tonnes, that’s around £140 million worth, of used but still wearable clothes go to landfill in the UK every year!
During this event you can swap your gently used garments for something new (to you).
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. 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.
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 speaks to 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.
From 14:30 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.
