Not long now until the next Give & Take Market folks, time to start gathering your unwanted books, tea pots and lampshades and clearing out your wardrobe for some new thrifty additions.
The 3rd Give & Take Market will be on Saturday 28th September.
At the last event, held earlier this year, locals donated more than a ton of unwanted goods to give away absolutely free and we’re hoping to do the same again on the 28th. This is a chance to get rid of things you don’t need and take home a few things you really do need.
The event also gives you a chance to speak to electrical repairers and get some fashion advice on sewing and repairing clothes.
How it works:
You don’t need to give items in order to take anything away. Everyone is welcome to give donate and to take. Between 9.30-12 we will be on the street accepting donation which will be sorted and weighed by volunteers; these will then be distributed onto market stalls manned by volunteers. From 12pm – 3.30 the public can come and help themselves. Stalls will be topped up several times throughout the afternoon.
How/what to donate?
· Please try and drop of donations between 10am and 12pm.
· Bring your stuff to the Popes Road end of Brixton Station Road and look out for the ‘drop off’ area and volunteers in high-viz
· Please make sure everything you donate is in fairly good nick and clean otherwise we won’t be able to accept it and please don’t bring us knives or chemicals.
· Electricals: we’re happy to take working electrical, and if you’re electrical item is broken please put a note on it saying so and saying what is broken, that way we can make sure it goes to someone who can fix it.
· Please put any small or delicate items in separate bags or boxes and label anything unusual.
· Ideas of what to donate: garden plants, houseplants, books, houseware, clothes, shoes, children’s toys, tools, broken musical instruments, working musical instruments, pots, pans, DVDs, bicycles, board games, tents, I could go on forever.
Robert Seear, Veolia’s Regional Manager for South London, said: “The previous event was a great success and we are very pleased to be supporting it again. We take great pride in assisting in fantastic community initiatives such as this and hope that residents continue to get as much out of it as possible and prevent a lot more items from being thrown away.”
The event relies heavily on a wonderful team of volunteers working on the day, if you’d like to volunteer get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is organised by The Brixton Market Traders Federation and sponsored by Veolia Environmental and Waste management Services.
