Thank you also to the women, men and even children who donated clothes, books, shoes, DVDs, nursery furniture, baby items (including nappies) and children’s toys. The women and children who attended swap shop benefitted from the day and from not having to purchase new items at the most expensive time of year. The items that were left have been given to POW Nottingham for their clothes bank and Central Women’s Refuge. There is quite a bit of children’s clothes and some toys left which will be stored until the next Nottingham Women for Change event so thank you all for taking part.
