Following on from the successful launch of Granton Goes Greener, we are delighted to announce that, as from next week (week commencing 9 July) our clothing swap shop will now be staffed at the following times:
4.30 – 6pm Tuesday (during the Community Meal, which everyone is welcome to attend)
12 noon – 1pm Friday
These are the times when people will be available to help you at the swap shop, though the clothing rails are there all the time that the church is open and you are free to help yourself at those times.
All clothing in the swap shop is free!
Please remember that you need to weigh all items of clothing that you either donate to the swap shop or that you take away with you. This is so we can calculate how much carbon we are saving in the Swap Shop, which is something we need to report to our funders the Climate Challenge Fund and the European Structural and Investment Funds.
To help us run this service, we are looking for volunteers for the Monday and Friday sessions (we already have enough volunteers for the Tuesday sessions). You can sign up for one session, take part in a rota or opt to do a stint of several weeks – whichever suits you! As a volunteer you would be expected to help sort out donated clothing, keep the rails stocked, weigh and record donated items and items that are taken away and chat to people using the store.
You can find out more about volunteering with us here.
