LCWO’s Autumn 2016 Bring and Take event was held on Saturday, 1st October, from 10.30am – 12.30pm. It was only a couple of hours but, as at all our Bring & Takes, so much stuff was swapped in that time. Here is the event in approximate numbers:
- 174 attendees
- 977 items re-homed, of which the most popular were books (27%), toys and games (23%) and clothes (19%)
- Leftover stuff: 10 bags of textiles (clothes and soft furnishings) taken to our local primary school to help with their fundraising, and many books taken for their Christmas bazaar; one third of a small van load taken to a charity shop and half a small van load taken to Redbridge (our local recyling centre), as far as possible for recycling.
