When I first moved to Hedland five years ago, I literally signed up to everything.. two sports, volunteering, work, the arts and much more. Although things have settled down, and some activities took a hiatus, this year I'm pleased to announce that I'm back at Vinnies!
Every Saturday morning i spend a few hours sorting and pricing clothes to go out on the shop floor. Aside from being appalled at the amount of clothes in this world, it's a great to see people recycle their wares for others to tresure.. and have a natter while sorting it all out! Sometimes I don my fashion police hat and throw away clothes which no teenager (or adult should wear - think trashy leather mini skirts!!) And coo at the teeny tiny baby clothes..
Vinnies in South Hedland is always looking for volunteers, so if you're keen to help out, give Shirley a bell. Alternatively, next time you're considering fast fashion, pause and take yourself to the nearest op shop, never know what you'll find!
ps - wore a black and white frock to Vinnies on the weekend, hence the pics in the post ;)
