Clothes Swap Fundraiser was a huge success!

17th November 2022
The Parent Council organised a clothes swapping fundraiser for East Linton Primary School,which raised a total of £724. The event took place on 17th November, 730 –10 p.m., at the Mart East Linton.
Raffle prizes were generously donated by:
• Bostock Bakery – tote bag
• Jo’s Kitchen – 6x frozen meals
• Linton Butchers – £20 voucher
• Mirror – Good bag of products
• Night Owl Books – £25 voucher
• Phantassie Fruit & Veg – £25 voucher
• Tropic Skincare – 2x hampers
• Various bottles of wines and Prosecco
The event took place to raise funds for each class and nursery to have a Christmas party,plus improvements to the school playground.
Funds were raised by people purchasing quality second hand clothes that had been kindly given by people throughout the local community. This encouraged  clothes to be reused rather than buying new and saved a lot of clothes from going to landfill.
Heather McDonald was also present selling Tropic Skincare products, the proceeds from which contributed to the overall total.
Surplus clothes from the event were donated to Kids Love Clothes, the rag bag bin, and local charity shops, along with the nursery for families that need extra support.
Huge thank thanks to everyone who got involved.
