Fund-raising clothes exchange for Heart of England Mencap

Stratford Editorial 2nd Oct, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

LADIES are being given a ‘licence to swish’ and raise funds for a local charity.

The Friends of Heart of England Mencap has organised a fund-raising clothes exchange – also known as a swish – at St Andrew’s Church Hall in Shottery on Thursday (October 8).

The idea of a swish is for people to exchange their unwanted clothes, bags, shoes and accessories with those belonging to others.

Set to start at 7pm, pampering will also be available with everything from manicures to blow dries on offer.

Karen Rousell, Chair of the Friends of Heart of England Mencap, said: “This is the second swish we have organised – the first was a real success.

“It is all about exchanging real quality goods, from scarves to shoes, jeans to dresses.

“If you have some great goods lying in your wardrobe going to waste, bring them along and take home something new.”

Tickets to ‘Licence to Swish’ cost £5 and includes a drink.

All items up for exchange will cost £1.50 each to take home and goods can be taken along on the night but people are asked to bring hangers.

For tickets and further information call Karen on 07817 641248.
