Are you looking to have a seasonal clear out of household items or clothing that you no longer want on need? Want to make a positive contribution to the environment by reducing the amount sent to landfill? If so, then your donations will be gladly welcomed by the Croydon Give and Take event.
Run by local social enterprise Green Croydon, the FREE event will take place on Surrey Street market on Saturday 17 November. From 10am-12pm people will be able to come and ‘give’ their items, where they will be sorted into various categories. Between 12-2pm, people will be able to ‘take’ any item they want – for free!
The total ‘given’ items will be weighed at the beginning of the event, followed by the leftover ‘given’ items which will be weighed once the event has finished, to reveal a figure of how much was prevented going to landfill. Any leftovers go to the next Give and Take event or if suitable are given to local charity shops.
