Super Swish

Change your wardrobe, change the world!

What's a Swish, and how does it work?

Swishing is the easy way to update your wardrobe! It's swapping the clothes you have with other people.

Think of it as guilt-free shopping, except it's for a one-off donation collected on the door (we suggest £5 per person).

 

Why should I Swish?

It helps save on the clothes that end up in landfill, making it great for the environment, and supports our work across 40 countries worldwide.

 

Where can I Swish?

You can hold your event at any suitable venue – church hall, community centre, school, even a pub.

 

What do I need for a Swish?

  • Hangers, mirrors, and tables to display items
  • Refreshments – serving drinks and cakes can also help tempt more people through the door, and boost your fundraising!
  • People – invite your friends, neighbours, colleagues and church members
  • To spread the word! Publicise your event as widely as you can – the more people who bring their clothes to be swished, the more choice there is on offer!
  • Our full Super Swish guide, which comes with a promotional poster.
