Clothes swap in Sheffield!

As you might know, I've been part of organising clothes swaps in Leeds for a while now, and we've done a couple in Sheffield too. We're back in the Steel City in March for another Sheffield swap. These haven't been as well attended as the Leeds ones so I'd love if we could change that this time around!

There are very few rules when it comes to one of my swaps. Firstly, you don't have to bring ANYTHING in order to get in. We always have plenty left over so feel free to take AS MUCH as you'd like. We have people of all ages and all genders come and enjoy themselves, and inasmuch as we can, it is run as a safe space. We start from a 16 and a size L, and clothes are divided on tables by type - eg all tops are together, all jeans, and so on. If you can't afford the entry fee, it will be waived. The Hubs is a fully accessible space and although the room used is on the first floor, there's a lift.

Clothes that are left over are usually given to a mental health charity I work for, or to the women's prison in Wakefield as it had an appeal for clothes. (It must be awful to be fat and in prison and have no clothes...)

The Facebook event is here, and if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me on I'd love to see plenty of people there!
