Thank you to those who took part in the successful ReFashion event at Cogges Manor Farm, Witney, on Sunday 1st November, hosted by Charlbury Green Hub, Transition Eynsham Area (TEA), and Sustainable Witney.

The ever popular ‘swishing’ (clothes swapping) event amazingly saved just under half a ton of perfectly good and wearable items of clothing from going into landfill. What a great result!

Suitable leftover items were collected to be distributed to the refugees in Calais. The remaining leftover items were donated to the African Children’s Fund.

There were seven workshops in total, including dressmaking, rag rug making, jewellery making, how to make wreaths from used material and denim clothing, and Christmas decoration kits.

Thank you to everyone who came along to this popular event or volunteered on the day. Your contribution helped save a lot of perfectly good items of clothing from landfill and inspired lots of people to repurpose or revamp their existing and unloved clothing.
