Winter is in full swing and Shanti Town, a local business in Mullumbimby, have put a clothes rack outside the shop with jumpers and jackets on it for people to take for free. Shanti Town owner Leora Sibony put the rack out a few weeks ago so that anyone who couldn’t afford a jumper to keep warm could get one for free.
‘Initially there were only a few jackets, and mostly people were taking them – but now more people are bringing jackets in to put on the rack,’ said Kirsten Burke who works at the shop.
‘Its not just for people who can’t afford a jacket. One day a lady asked how much they were as she had forgotten her jacket. I told her they were free and she asked if she could borrow one while she was in town and bring it back later. I said that was fine.’
So if you have a few jumpers or jackets that you no longer need pop them onto one of the spare coat hangers outside Shanti Town for someone who does.
