‘Buy My Wardrobe’ is a fundraiser that ticks lots of boxes.

It’s for anyone who’s ever looked in their wardrobe and thought ‘I have nothing to wear’.

It’s for anyone who’s ever looked in their wardrobe and thought ‘I need to get rid of some of these clothes I no longer wear’.

It’s for anyone who loves to find a pre-loved treasure.

Everyone can join in the campaign in the run up to the Myall River Festival.

“We are looking for donations of second hand clothes,” Kerry Patterson told News Of The Area.

When Kerry says ‘we,’ she’s talking about ‘The Pearls’ who are a group of women who raise money for good causes by getting together for lunch once a month and popping $15 each in the kitty.

Since 2013 they’ve donated over $5,500.

“We’ve donated to local Rural Fire Service, the Wig Library at John Hunter Hospital, women’s refuges in Newcastle, Bulahdelah and Raymond Terrace,” Kerry Patterson told News Of The Area.

“We also give an encouragement gift to a student at Tea Gardens Primary which is an ongoing commitment,” Kerry said.

Last year the Pearl’s ‘Buy My Wardrobe ’campaign raised $1,150 for Jenny’s Place, a refuge for women and children in Newcastle.

This year money raised will go to ’Harry’s House’, a home away from home for children undergoing cancer treatment.
If you’d like to donate some good quality clothes, its very simple.

‘’We’ve got two drop off points, one in Pindimar and the other in Tea Gardens.”

“Just contact Sandy on 0407 073 797 or Rosalie on 0400 382 218.”

You’ll find ‘Buy My Wardrobe’ in the Dolphin Room of the Tea Gardens Hotel from 10am on Saturday 28 October.

“We’re hoping because people found us last year, they’ll be looking for us again,” Kerry said.
