Charity clothes swap to raise money to fight cancer

Liz Whitehead and Lynne Chilton from the Dales Divas.

A charity clothes swap will take place in Leyburn later this month to raise money for the fight against cancer.

The event is being organised by a group of friends known as the Dales Divas who are raising money for the Walk the Walk breast cancer charity.

The clothes swap will take place between 12noon and 5pm on  Oak Lodge B&B in Jenkins Garth, Leyburn, on Saturday, April 28.

This story continues after the adverts:


Participants need to swap a minimum of three items, which can be dropped off at the B&B anytime before the Saturday.

It then costs £6 to enter on the day, including free tea, coffee and cake.

Wine and nibbles will also be available.

Those attending can take home the same number of items that they dropped off.

All clothes need to be in good condition.

Lynne Chilton, from Oak Lodge, said: “It’s a great way of freshening up your wardrobe and having a good social afternoon all for a good cause.”
