Campbell & Fletcher Recruitment MD Tracy Fletcher will be hosting a charity event on Thursday 6th October at East 59th in Leeds with the theme ‘Swap for Smart Works’.

Tracy is proud to be an active  Trustee for a fantastic charity, Smart Works, that supports unemployed women with the clothes, coaching and confidence they need to get a job and transform their lives. In the last year 72% of the women who have visited Smart Works got the job within one month of their appointment.

Swap for Smart Works is a new initiative designed to encourage people to get together and swap their pre-loved clothes, at the same time raising funds for this amazing charity. At Smart Works, they believe in the positive power of clothes. Swap for Smart Works is a unique opportunity for you to renew your wardrobe, champion sustainability and use fashion as a force for good. Not only will your pre-loved clothes become re-loved, you will be playing an important part in empowering women to feel confident at a crucial moment and achieve job success.

This unique event will work as follows:

  1. The event will be ticketed (£25 per ticket), included in the entry price will be a welcome glass of Prosecco, additional drinks (Wine, Beer, Prosecco and soft drinks), as well as canapés.
  2. Attendees are invited to bring pre-loved clothing to swap. We will need the clothes before the day of the event so they can be sorted and put on hangers/rails etc. Items could be clothing and/or accessories.
  3. Anyone who donates clothes are given tokens to ‘spend’ on the evening
  4. Additional tokens can be bought if you’d like to acquire more items than you have donated!
  5. Any really expensive items could be raffled or put into a silent auction (they will earn additional tokens)
  6. We am hoping that we can persuade one of our influencer supporters to join us, maybe give some hints/tips on upcycling, sustainability etc.
  7. Most importantly we want it to be a fun evening where we can all get together, make new friends and celebrate being awesome women!
