How it works!

Look out any unwanted ladies clothes/accessories you have and bring them along!

Pay £5 entry fee, and receive 1 token for every item of clothing you bring along (maximum of 5 tokens but donate as many items as you’d like).

Any leftover items at the end of the night will be added to our ragbag donations to raise money for Tweedbank Early Learners.

Use your tokens to ‘pay’ for new items. Extra tokens can also be bought for £2, so even if you don’t bring along many or any items, you can leave with a whole new outfit!

Entry fee includes nibbles, and a good night out with stalls selling accessories to complete your new outfits, a donation bar, music and a good chance for a catch up! Please invite your friends – all welcome!
