Kit & Clothes Swap
January 30 @ 18:00 - 21:00
Have you got unwanted or unused kit that you would like to swap for something else from a like-minded person? Have you made a New Year resolution to clear out some un-used kit? Would you like to freshen up you kit cupboard but in a responsible and sustainable way?
Wonderful Wild Women are hosting their second kit swap at Alpkit Ambleside!
Everyone is welcome so if you have any items of outdoor gear or clothing that you no longer need you can come and swap it for something you do need. *the swap will work by a token system – if you don’t use all your tokens this time you can save them for a future swap.*
Any leftover kit will be donated to the Continuum Project, where we pass unwanted gear and clothes on to groups or charities who will in turn give them directly to someone who needs them for going nice places & doing good things. Occasionally, when a garment is deemed no longer fit for purpose, it will be donated to scientific research projects relating to the outdoor industry and up/down-cycling projects. If you cannot make it to the event then you can still donate at any of our stores. More information about the Continuum can be found on the Alpkit website.
Tea, coffee & cake is all supplied by Alpkit so come along! The perfect excuse to de-clutter after Christmas!
