They say a change is as good as a holiday and Junee’s CWA branch will embrace that mantra when it allows locals to give their winter wardrobes a dramatic shakeup at its inaugural clothes swap. 

The event is set to run from 2pm to 4pm at the Junee Ex-Services Club Auditorium on Saturday.

“We’re very excited, it’s our biggest fundraiser of the year,” Junee CWA secretary Gemma Marshall said.

“It’s also the first clothes swap in Junee that we know of.”

Ms Marshall said the concept had been highly successful at other CWA branches.

“It’s just something a little bit different and hopefully it’s really successful.”

The public is encouraged to bring a bag of unwanted clothing - provided it is in good condition - and leave with a bag of different clothes.

All forms of clothing can be swapped, other than undergarments, swimwear and sleepwear.

The day will also feature an auction of some of the highest quality items. 

Those who do not have clothes to swap are still encouraged to attend the afternoon tea.

Entry is $10, with all funds will be distributed back into the local community via CWA Junee.
