Just in from Camden – last minute news of a promising community event Give & Take to the West of Kings Cross. There are some pics of the last Give and Take over in Facebook.
>>Free community event and swap shop
Saturday 31 March 10.30am-2pm
Somers Town Community Centre
150 Ossulston Street

10.30am to 11.30pm and take something you do need from
12.00 to 2pm. *
Things to bring: Household items including books, CDs, DVDs, electrical items, toys, sports gear, bric-a-brac, and small items of furniture.
We won’t accept: Broken items in need of repair, food, toiletries, sharp or dangerous objects, and upholstery without a fire safety tag.
Give & Take Events are a great way to recycle. They offer you the chance to pass on items you no longer want, that are in good condition and working order for others to reuse. You can even pick up something new.
No money is exchanged and lots of useful items are diverted from landfill. At a recent event over 600kg of items were exchanged.
The aim of a Give and Take event is to reduce, reuse and recycle – the three R’s – enabling you to swap usable items in an easy and sustainable way.
