Brecon’s School Uniform Swap Shop is back for an October Half-Term event at the St John Centre on Wednesday 27th October between 3pm and 6pm.
Families in Brecon are invited to attend the free event which was launched by County Councillor Matthew Dorrance and Town Councillor Michaela Davies earlier this year.
The half-term event is open to all families in Brecon who need school uniform items or wish to donate items their children have outgrown. The scheme was set up to help save families money and stop good clothes from going to landfill.
Matthew and Michaela are appealing for donations of Priory and Mount Street Jumpers, Brecon High School blazers and warm coats.
County Councillor Matthew Dorrance said:
“Our second School Uniform Swap Shop is taking place in October half-term and we are inviting local families to come along.
“This free event is open to everyone and we want local families to come and take what they need to help get their children ready for the autumn school term.
“We want to help families cut the cost of school uniform and help stop good items from going to landfill.”
Town Councillor Michaela Davies added:
“Our first event proved just how much this scheme is needed so I am delighted that we have been able to organise another swap shop for October half-term.
“Come along and take the items you need to help your child get ready for the new term.”
You can also donate items to the School Uniform Swap Shop by taking items along on the day or by contacting Cllr Matthew Dorrance.
