We are very happy to again have a clothes swap at the Ecofair, as it was much loved and used by people last year!
It is organised by Granton Goes Greener, which is a project with the Swap Shop (very recently renamed Share and Wear) being a core part of it. We have started 1,5 year ago and the project was founded by CCF.
Our main objectives were:
- running the swap shop,
- encouraging recycling and up-cycling,
- running and organising cycling tours (4 during the year founded by CCF) as well as bike repairing session (4 during 1 year).
We have been also distributing rescued bread donated and collected by our volunteer every Thursday from Baynes Bakeries.
At the moment we are founded by Robertson Trust and Go For It.
- run the Swap Shop,
- do rescued bread distribution,
- supply free sanitary products and food donated by different supermarkets/ Fare Share.
We just received additional funds from the council to do 6 weeks sewing classes and buy some sewing equipment for the project.
We are now focusing more on community engagement and working with volunteers.
