Give and take that stuff and clutter
12:00am Friday 28th September 2012 in News
ANYONE with items they no longer need is invited to a Give or Take Day this weekend.
Organised by the Quakers (Society of Friends) in Malton , this family event gives the chance for people to donate unwanted household items, such as clothing or small items of furniture and, at the same time, pick up something they need – all for free.
John Woods from Malton Quakers said: “By simply exchanging goods we can all save a bit of money. Too many usable items end up in landfill, which could easily be re-used, so we are hosting this community event, as well as drawing attention to National Quaker Week.”
The event is supported by Ryedale District Council and John Brown, the council’s recycling officer said: “Re-use of household items is a much better option than disposal. Most people in the Malton area will have items they no longer need or use, so why not pass these on for re-use rather than discard them?”
The event is at the Friends’ Meeting House, Greengate, on Saturday, 9.30am-12.30pm.
