Corby community clothes swap to re-use, recycle and rewind

The waste-reducing clothes swap shop will allow people to freshen-up their wardrobes for minimum cost

Wednesday, 5th February 2020, 5:10 pm

Owners of a Corby clothing retailer have organised their second community clothes swap event - this time at a weekend to encourage even more people to go along.

Lauren Noakes and Natalie Belton launched Rewind Clothing in April 2019 to sell unwanted and pre-used clothes.

They have organised a second community swap meeting to enable people to exchange clothes, for free, at Stephenson Way Community Centre in Corby

Lauren said: "Turn out wasn't big for the first event but the feedback we got was that people wanted to come. Some couldn't come because of work so we are giving this one a try."

The pair are hoping that people will take advantage of the clothes swap taking place on Sunday, February 9 from 1pm to 3pm.

A £2 entrance fee will go towards the cost of hall hire, and free refreshments will be available.

Lauren added: "It's £2 to get in and you've got to bring something to swap - adults and children's clothes, shoes, belts and even decent underwear.

"Any profit will go to Corby Rise and any decent men's underwear will be donated to them too."

Any swapped clothing will be passed on to charity shops or for recycling.

Unwanted clothes, in wearable condition and sorted into size order, should be brought to the swap shop at Stephenson Way Community Centre from 1pm to 3pm on Sunday, February 9.

Since opening their online store, the entrepreneurs have built up online business with sales booming of their 're-edited', eclectic fashion items.
