From garage sale to fashion carnival: Bindaring Clothing Sale returns for its 61st year

Australian Red Cross < 1 mins read

Proving giving hasn't gone out of fashion, the Bindaring Clothing Sale is celebrating 61 years of supporting Australian Red Cross by hosting its popular clothing sale event on Saturday 18th May at the Claremont Showgrounds.  

Bindaring President, Althea Mahon said the volunteer-led event has grown from a garage sale in Claremont to a fashion carnival attracting thousands of shoppers each year to the Claremont Showgrounds.  

This year we’ve received more than 10 tonnes of donated clothing and accessories from generous Western Australians based right across the state meaning there’s something to suit all budgets, tastes and styles 

With most pieces averaging between $2-$10 each, it’s the perfect opportunity for shoppers to snap up some high-end fashion at bargain prices, while upcycling their wardrobe, all whilst supporting a good cause,” she said. 

Australian Red Cross WA State Director Craig Stewart, said the generous donations from the Bindaring Clothing Sale play a critical role in enabling the organisation to deliver its vital community services. 

“In the past 12-months Australian Red Cross has provided support to 20 communities impacted by disasters across Western Australia, helped 1,500 individuals start a new life in Australia and provided warm meals to 12,000 people who are doing it tough.  

None of this would be possible without the generous support of Bindaring whose 61 year-strong commitment we’re incredibly thankful for, he said. 

Between now and the event more than 200 volunteers, including school and university students, will roll up their sleeves to help sort, clean and mend donations before displaying them at the Claremont Showgrounds on Saturday 18thMay. Entry to the event is free.
