Women’s refuge benefits from sale of clothing

The Thomas Green was filled with clothes on Saturday afternoon for a fundraiser for Gore Women’s Refuge.

Thomas Green manager Rozel Taylor said about $500 was raised.

“We would have had 90 to 100 people through the door,” Miss Taylor said.

This was the first second-hand clothing sale the Thomas Green had run.

“It was good for the first one.”

Her plan was to run one every six months to raise money for the women’s refuge.

“It gives people six months to think about things they want to sell.

“Most of the stallholders said they would come to the next one.”

Miss Taylor was encouraging people to gather some clothes up and put a stall, at a cost of $25, in the next sale.

Clothes not sold from the Thomas Green stall were donated to the women’s refuge safe house, she said.
