Dalston roofpark clothes swap fundraiser – for Childhope and Art Against Knives

Swap

We’re excited to be doing our 2nd Clothes Club fundraising event on Dalston roof park, on Thursday 21st May during their opening launch month.We’re supporting two great projects:

A youth project run by Arts Against Knives. Through their creative workshops and projects they have been successful in supporting young individuals with a past in crime who need experience and opportunity to access education employment and training.

We’re also supporting Childhope via TRAID, to provide birth certificates for children of garment workers. In Bangladesh many garment workers are extremely poor women who are single mothers. They have usually migrated from rural areas looking for work and opportunities for themselves and their children. With high demand for cheap labour in the garment industry, many of these women work sewing clothes in factories. Birth certificates are crucial so their children can get access to education and medical care.

Early bird tickets are available for £8, hope to see some of you there. And thanks for your support.

Let’s put some conscience into our closets!
