The centre will hold a giant clothing swap event on Saturday 8 July from 11am-2pm. The swap will be run via tokens – shoppers are encouraged to bring a bag of good-quality unwanted clothing in exchange for tokens, which they can exchange for new-to-them items brought in by others.

All proceeds from the swap, plus all the unclaimed clothing items, will be donated to the Salvation Army. The charitable organisation supports more than 120,000 families per year with budgeting, food and clothing assistance.
