A popular swap shop event returns to Leicester pub The Lansdowne next month, offering customers the chance to freshen up their wardrobes for the summer.

The event, which is in aid of Leicestershire and Rutland hospice LOROS, will be the third event of its kind at The Lansdowne in London Road.

“Our previous swap shops have been very popular with customers, and we’ve raised a nice sum for LOROS as well, which we hope to do again,” said organiser Rachel Hurst.

“Clothes swapping events have become a fashionable way of bagging a bargain and recycling items that no longer fit or are no longer worn. With summer hopefully on its way soon, it’s a perfect opportunity to have a bit of a clear out and help charity at the same time.”

The Lansdowne is inviting people to drop off any clothes, shoes, handbags or accessories at least a week before the event, which takes place on Saturday May 12th from 1pm to 6pm.

In exchange, they will receive tokens that can be used to buy items at the swap shop. Additional tokens can be bought on the day.

Clothes swapping events have become particularly popular in the current economic climate, as fashion fans aim to freshen up their look without shelling out a fortune.

It’s an opportunity to collect some cool clothes, while at the same time finding new homes for items that are cluttering up the wardrobe.

LOROS will receive the proceeds from any tokens that are sold, will benefit from donations given at the event, and any left over items, which will be donated to a LOROS shop.
