Mitchell Youth Council is hosting a Clothes Swap event where people can bring clean and undamaged items of clothing they no longer want, need or wear and swap them for another item at the event using a token system. Attendees can also get involved with sewing workshops that encourage up-cycling and enter any new piece of transformed clothing into a competition that will be run throughout the day.

How to donate your clothes

It’s as easy as 1, 2 3!
