Hitting all the marks from recycling to helping others, the SHIFT fundraising sale of preloved and new clothing is taking place this Saturday, 5 September.
The SHIFT Project is aimed at assisting women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Co-organiser Leslie Ford, who is helping co-ordinate the event again this year, said, ‘It is a local charity that acts in our local community helping local women. They are helping people moving into new phases of their lives. It is an active process’.
‘The government has pulled significant funding out of women’s refuges and services. They don’t get a lot of funding support so we are happy to be able to do something’.
‘We did it for the first time last year and in three hours raised $4,000. We are lucky to be receiving donations of new clothes from previous seasons from local stores as well as beautiful pre-loved pieces. We are hoping that we can make it an annual fundraising event’.
If you have some pre-loved clothing, accessories or shoes to donate you can drop them off at Bell & Ford in Bangalow or Byron Bay during business hours.
Otherwise, head down and pick up some fabulous new clothes between 8am and 1pm in the car park at the rear of Red Ginger and Bell & Ford in Jonson Street, Byron Bay, opposite Woollies and the cinemas.
