The Big Clothes Swap

Our first clothes swap was amazing! VoW will be supporting Woodlands Village Hall with their clothes swap on Saturday 21 September 2024. Do come along.

Watch this space for details of any local collection points to save you dropping off at Woodlands. 

Adults and children's clothes can be swapped. Shoes taken but they must be as new. 

No points? No problem. Anyone can come along from 2pm to 2.30pm and take what you want, for free.
