What a mammoth task! Mountains of clothes are kindly donated throughout the year. The volunteer team, then work tirelessly for days on end. They sift and sort the ‘jumble’ of items into baskets, fold shorts and tees into piles and hang the ‘better’ quality items. ‘Jumble’ items are all under $10 and there’s also a special ‘Fill a bag for 50c’ area.

Mirrors lined up, ready to be placed in the changerooms. BIG TIP: Wear leggings or gym gear so you can try clothes on ‘over the top’ without needing to line up for a changeroom.
