Feminist Event: Pre-loved fashion sale for New Horizons for Women Trust

It's stuff like this that makes me wish I lived in Wellington. Sigh.
With a holiday weekend ahead of us, [oops, my bad, behind us now, J] you may be intending to have a clean out of the wardrobe. Think of us when you do so as we need your clothes – to give women a second chance at education.

Donations are coming in and with less than 7 weeks [now one month!, J] before the sale we are out there collecting donated clothes.

The New Horizons for Women Trust is holding its fourth annual Pre-Loved Fashion Sale on 21 March, and we need your help to make it a success.

Don’t leave your unworn outfits languishing in your wardrobe – your unwanted clothing can help us provide awards to assist women with no qualifications to embark on tertiary education for the first time, and to fund research into issues of interest to women.

Last year, the Wellington region’s great annual wardrobe clearance raised more than $10,000. This year, we’re hoping to raise $15,000 by improving the quality of the clothing we sell. If you have good-quality, contemporary items of clothing that you can spare – including bags, scarves and even coat hangers – let us know and we’ll come and pick them up.

Email with your address and phone number, and we’ll contact you. Our sale will be held from 9am to noon on Saturday, 21 March at St Andrew’s on the Terrace church hall in Wellington. Put the date in your diaries now, and you’ll be able to pick up 10 outfits for the price you’d usually pay for one.
