THE BINDARING CLOTHING SALE

What is the Bindaring Red Cross Clothing Sale?

The Bindaring Clothing Sale is held annually in May at Claremont Showground. Organised by volunteers, the funds raised support the work of Australian Red Cross.

 

Since 1963 it has offered everyone an opportunity to update their wardrobe with style at bargain basement prices.  Bindaring's reputation for providing excellent quality new and nearly new clothing attracts thousands of shoppers each year, from fashionistas looking for that designer gem, to those on a tight budget wanting to clothe their families.

 

Aims

  • We endeavour to make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of people in Australia, by raising funds to support Red Cross community programs.

  • We achieve this by working in our communities to collect donations of clothes and accessories and coming together annually over a two week period, to prepare these donations in readiness for a one-day sale, raising as much money as possible for Red Cross Australia.

  • We aim to extend our volunteer skills and experiences while we connect with others, meet new people and build friendships.

  • We seek to provide a source of affordable clothing for many low income families in our community.

  • We encourage sustainability, promoting the re-use or re-cycling of clothes and accessories, thereby reducing landfill.  

  • Nothing goes to waste. Any items unsuitable for sale are sold on to a recycling company who reuses buttons, buckles, zips and fabric. Any items unsold on the day of the Bindaring Sale are forwarded to Red Cross Shops around the State to be sold throughout the following months.

  • We recognise Bindaring is a voluntary relief movement and we are not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.

  • In all activities our Bindaring volunteers and members are guided by the 7 Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement: Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality.
