Local charity launches Sustainable September embracing second-hand fashion for a greener future

September 2023


As the world becomes increasingly aware of the environmental impact of fast fashion, one local charity is encouraging individuals to make a positive difference by choosing to buy second-hand clothing that is both eco-friendly and budget-friendly.

Prospect Hospice’s charity shops are a treasure trove of pre-loved fashion items, and their eBay shop offers a convenient online shopping experience for those who prefer to shop from the comfort of their home.

As part of this campaign, Prospect Hospice will be hosting special late-night openings at four of its charity shops: Marlborough Boutique, West Swindon, Cricklade and the newly opened Cavendish Square. Shoppers are invited to head to one of these shops on Thursday 14 September from 5pm to 7pm, where they will have the opportunity to browse a fantastic selection of pre-loved clothing and accessories. Plus, all customers will enjoy an exclusive 10% discount on pre-loved clothing during these extended hours.

“We are thrilled to launch Sustainable September and promote the importance of sustainable fashion choices within our community,” said Victoria Canavan, head of retail at Prospect Hospice. “By shopping second-hand, not only can individuals find unique fashion pieces at affordable prices, but they can also help reduce the environmental impact often associated with the fashion industry.

“We encourage everyone in to join the Sustainable September movement,” continued Victoria, “and make sustainable fashion choices, contributing to a greener, more compassionate future.”

Prospect Hospice’s charity shops are well-known for their high-quality, affordable, and fashion-forward selections. From clothing to shoes, handbags to jewellery, there is something for everyone. Every donation and purchase made from the hospice’s shops will help the charity to continue providing and expanding its services, ensuring that outstanding care is accessible to those who need it most.
