    Come Swishing
    Where: The Royal British Legion, Thurso
    When: 7.30pm Monday 22nd July 2013
    What’s it all about?
    Swishing is the social gathering of people who want to move on good quality, clean clothes and accessories from their wardrobe and, in return, can browse others items taken along, try them on or ask for it to be modelled (we’ll have models all ages and sizes to help you see what the item(s) look like) and then take away the same number of items that they’ve brought along. Easy.
    All you need to do is bring along 3 items (minimum of one and maximum of 12) from your wardrobe, sit back and chat, browse, decide what you want and then continue socialising. All ages welcome, come along with a few friends and have a giggle (you’re not going to fit into it again so get rid!)
    £3 Ticket entry at the door (children £2), an entrance ticket draw will be made and one lucky person will win a special prize. Refreshments available from lounge. Raffle.
    All Proceeds to Thurso Town Improvements Association
    Clothes left at end of evening will be donated to local charities
