Friday 8th May (Preview on Thursday 7th).
It’s Time to Clear Out Your Wardrobe for Good Causes !
After the roaring success of the last three sales you and your friends and family are now cordially invited to the 4th FABULOUS Friends of Pinewood Designer Bring & Buy Clothes Sale.
Sale Preview: Thursday 7th May 2015 from 7-9 pm. Tickets £10 in advance only (from the school office), to include Prosecco and nibbles.
Sale: Friday 8th May 2015 from 8am-1pm. Tickets £5 on the door only, to include tea, coffee and yummy homemade cakes.
Venue: The Cripwell Family Home (5 minutes from school – directions and parking details available from the Office or Parents Information in the school website).
The Idea (for those of you who have not attended before):
We are pretty sure that most of you have good quality items of clothing and accessories (hats, scarves, jewellery, bags, shoes etc.) in your wardrobe that you have either NEVER worn (probably over-optimistic sale purchases, sometimes with the tags still on!) or just don’t pick out any longer but which are still perfectly wearable. If you do, they aren’t doing anyone any good by simply hanging there – someone else would love them and would be willing to pay the princely sum of between £2-£5 (possibly £10+ if they are top notch) for the privilege of purchasing them. So, rather than driving to a charity shop, recycle them at school whilst grabbing yourself something that you WILL wear for almost nothing at the same time as supporting causes close to your heart. Purchase prices are kept low as the idea is to sell as much as possible, not become a second-hand clothes agency, and also so that this time any impulsive purchases you make won’t cost you an arm and a leg ! Proceeds to FOP with a percentage going to a selection of other charities, and even if nothing takes your fancy you can have a drink and/or a coffee, cake and a catch-up. Please no mens’ or childrens’ items and nothing that is bobbled or stained as we really would like to keep the quality up and sell as much as possible. Please be reassured that all unsold items WILL be recycled as we either donate them to local charity shops or sell them for rags.
This Year’s Charities : Bags4Sport (www.bag4sport-foundation.co.uk), Splash (www.splash-wiltshire.org.uk) and Shonda (www.shonda.org.uk) with Thursday night’s proceeds going to Seesaw (www.seesaw.org.uk)
The success of this event, of course, depends upon a reasonable amount of good quality donations so get in your wardrobes now and have a good sort out.
There will be specific collection days on the 16th and 23rd March, the 27th April and the 4th of May (in the School Hall), but clothing donations can be given to any member of the FOP Committee or left under the Hall table opposite the school office at any time up to and including the day of the sale (although we would prefer them as early as possible).
Many thanks ….. The FOP Committee
