Clothing Exchange Success

We held our first Clothing Exchange on Wednesday 1st May 2019 and it was a fantastic success!

VJ, one of our Parent Governors had the inspiration and took the initiative to organise a Clothing Exchange alongside one our coffee mornings in order to give families an opportunity to clear out their children's wardrobes and offer others a chance to take home good quality, clean, used clothing for free in a friendly environment. Parents/carers also had an opportunity to meet and connect with other parents and relax with a warm drink. The event was very well attended and due to the success of the event we will be looking to run it on a monthly basis.
Parents had this to say about the event:
"Excellent idea to get families to contribute within the community."
"Lovely to talk to all the parents who come to the nursery. Nice to be bale to exchange clothes and bring parents in."
"It was a pleasure to communicate with other mums to discuss between us and share a lot of information and become more closer because normally we have the children with us and we are in a rush all the time."
Any clothing not taken during the coffee morning was on offer for parents throughout the rest of the day.
A huge thank you to VJ for putting this together at such short notice and we will let you know about the next date and look forward to having you join us.
