Town centre teams with Sallies

By Bridget Kelly

Botany Town Centre has partnered with Salvation Army for their five days of fashion.

People are encouraged to bring in their unwanted items of clothing that are in good condition, and exchange them for tokens, which can then be exchanged for other clothing items in a Stop, Swap, and Shop event.

The Salvation Army will be bringing in clothes to kick-start the swap.

Any leftover clothes and all proceeds will go back into those in need who can’t afford warm clothes this winter. The week also involves a number of free events that will be hosted by a team of experts.

Retail Therapy Monday will be hosted by medical Doctor Dr Frances Pitsili, who will be speaking about holistic ways to stay healthy this winter, and how shopping can be healthy for you.

Kerry Finlay, Botany’s resident stylist from Mirror Mirror, will also be speaking on how to make a winter wardrobe work for you.

There will also be a MAC Cosmetics Sculpt and Shape workshop, and the Schnips team will be demonstrating on-trend hair styles for this season.

July 3 – Retail Therapy Monday at 12.30pm
July 4 – Hair styling session Tuesday at 11am
July 5 – Style workshop Wednesday at 2pm
July 6 – Sculpt & Shade Thursday at 11am
July 8 – Stop, Swap, and Shop Saturday at 11am-2pm
