Longfield weighs in with new pre-loved clothes kilo sale


Are you interested in sustainable clothing purchases? Do you love to search for that special pre-loved item in your local charity shop?

Do you think about how much high-quality clothing goes to waste, landfill or lays unloved in someone’s wardrobe?

You will love Longfield Community Hospice’s first ever pop-up kilo event on Sunday 12th May which runs from 1-4pm at Stonehouse Community Centre/Laburnum Walk/Laburnum Rd, Stonehouse GL10 2NS.

For those who’ve not had the experience of perusing the rails for vintage or retro clothing, pre-loved high street clothes or have an eye to upcycle an outfit then this is an awesome event not to be missed, the doors open at 1pm – 4pm. For just £3 per kilo, you can seek out a completely new style or find some items that will give your current wardrobe a new lease of life or a new twist in your styling.

Jo Webster, Longfield’s Retail Area Manager said: “We’re very excited to bring our first ever Kilo Sale to shoppers in the Stonehouse area. We are providing the bags; all customers need to do is pick their items and pop them in the bags for us to weigh. It’s only £3 per kilo and you can buy as much as you like on the day. We will have a huge variety of stock, which we will refresh during the afternoon so there’s something for everyone.”

There won’t be changing facilities available at the venue, therefore taking a tape measure to check sizing would be something to think about on the day. Shoppers can pay by cash or card at the event and there is no limit to the number of bags you can fill.

Jo added: “Longfield charity shops are an important part of the community, providing local employment, productive volunteering opportunities to a range of age groups and stability to ailing high streets. The environmental benefits through the re-use and re-purposing of pre-loved items are hugely important. And apart from all of these reasons, we all love to seek out that very special item at a very special price.

“Whether it’s a gentleman’s jacket, some new work gear, a t-shirt or something for a special occasion, we will do our best to help you find the perfect items to suit your needs.”
