About this event:
The Spring Clothes Swap
Our Fifteenth (!) Clothes Swap Party takes place on Saturday May 2018. This friendly event offers a great opportunity to enjoy some eco-shopping in good company. Why not clear out your cupboards and donate good quality, clean clothes, shoes and accessories to this worthwhile cause? All your donations will be carefully sorted by our hard-working clothes swap team in preparation for the Clothes Swap Party.
Feel Good Shopping!
Visitors to the Clothes Swap Party will be able to choose from hundreds of good quality items and, in return for a donation to our chosen charity appeal, can take home as much as they wish. There will also be a parent-run pop-up café to keep everyone topped up with coffee and cake throughout the afternoon.
For Good Causes
All cash donations at the Clothes Swap Party will be shared equally between the charity The Silver Line and Ringwood Waldorf School. To date we have raised over £10,000 for a number of national and international appeals and our own school.
Donate Clothes Now!
To donate good quality clothes, shoes and accessories please contact the team on 07968 070 490.
Our Charity This Year
The Silver Line
The Silver Line is the only free confidential helpline providing information, friendship and advice to older people, open 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The helpline number is: 0800 4 70 80 90.
We also offer telephone and letter friendship schemes where we match volunteers with older people based on their interests; facilitated group calls; and help to connect people with local services in their area.
- Silver Line Telephone Friends
If callers would like to be put in touch with a Silver Line Friend, they can enjoy a regular weekly friendship telephone call.
- Silver Letters
Telephone friendship schemes are not suitable for everyone. We created the Silver Letters scheme for people who might be hearing impaired, and would like a Silver Line Friend, as well as those who just prefer the written word. Silver Letters are a regular exchange of correspondence between an older person and a Silver Line Friend.
- Silver Circles
Silver Circles are facilitated group telephone calls where people with shared interests can discuss topics that interest them with a wider group. This is enjoyed by people who would like to speak with more than one person at a time.
- Silver Connects
The Silver Connects team provides older people with more intensive support, advice, and help with connecting to local services. Since launching in November 2015, the team has worked on issues ranging from housing and health issues, to finding lunch clubs and even financial concerns.
