01/02/19 - Swap ‘til you drop is going ahead as planned. Please take care on the roads
(We’ve got some lovely clothes here waiting for you - if weather worsens we’ll finish earlier than planned)
Swap ‘til you drop!
Friday 1st February 2019
7.45pm - 10.30pm
The Old Rectory, Godalming, GU7 1XB
What is it all about?
You bring along good quality clothes, hats, shoes, accessories or jewellery that you don’t wear/don’t fit/don’t like or bought in a state of post-Christmas madness in the Boxing Day sales, and swap it for another item - the more items you bring, the more you can take away with you!
It’s going to be a fun evening with the opportunity of completely refreshing your wardrobe for Spring, all the while, having a lovely time with the ladies!
Tickets cost £5 per person
The evening includes some light nibbles & a drink with your ticket
I’ve never been to something like this before, how will the evening run?
When you arrive, you’ll find all the clothes that have been donated displayed on shopping rails and as you tick your name off at the door, you’ll be given your clothes tokens to ‘buy’ your clothes at the end of the evening.
** Each person attending needs to have to have donated clothes in order to take clothes away.
To give everyone a fair chance of getting something they really love, we start off with a trying on session, so you can see what suits you best, then all the clothes go back on the rails and we announce that ‘buying’ can commence! You can keep trying on things throughout the evening so you’re sure to find something lovely.
If you end up not using your tokens on the evening, you are very welcome to give them to another of our lovely ladies to use...our aim is that everybody goes away with something fabulous.
What kinds of things can I donate?
Any good and clean condition clothing of any type, hats, gloves, scarfs, shoes, bags or jewellery. As it is an event for women, please don’t bring items for children or men as our aim is to give our ladies a fab new wardrobe that’s all about them.
Do I bring my donations on the evening?
No! That would be chaos! We ask that you drop your clothes off in a named bag at the Old Rectory in the two weeks before the event (16-30 January), so we can sort them out ready for the Swap. The final day for dropping off will be 30 January. We will count up how many buying tokens to allocate to you (eg. you drop off 10 items beforehand, then on the night of Swap ‘til you drop you can take up to 10 items away with you - simple!) and you’ll receive the tokens as you come in.
What happens to the clothes that no one wants?
At the end of the evening we collect all the leftover items and donate them to the Cancer Research shop in Godalming, as a gift to them.
So what do you need to do next?
You MUST register as we’ll have limited spaces available, and we don’t want to disappoint anyone who just turns up.
