Introducing the newest Manningham Sustainability Event! SWAP!

Posted in Events by Ferne Edwards on November 12th, 2008

What: Bought to you by Manningham’s Youth Leaders, SWAP is a second hand goods exchange market that aims to reduce waste, save precious resources and ease the burden on our landfills. Participants simply register and bring along any unwanted goods that are clean and useful!
When: Saturday 15 November 2008, 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Doncaster Senior Citizens Centre, Cnr Doncaster Road Dehnert Street, east Doncaster, (across the road from Jacksons Court Shopping Centre), Melways Ref: 47 K1, Bus Route: 207, 307.

Items for SWAPing
(Items will only be excepted if they are in good, useful and clean condition)
Clothes, hats and shoes
Sporting Goods
Baby goods
Bikes & Books

How it works
SWAPer’s earn free buttons (SWAP currency). 1 button for each item. Better the item the more buttons earned. For example a book may be worth 1 button and a fully functioning BMX bike or a tennis racquet signed by Pat Rafter may be worth 20 buttons. Bring along your items, collect your buttons and then go SWAPing’ No money is exchanged and all left over items are donated to charity.

Don’t have any SWAP items?
If you don’t have an item for SWAPing you can still participate. 10 buttons cost a dollar. Proceeds to go to charity (The Otesha Project).
