"It is also a bit of a social thing. You don’t need to donate clothes to take part.

"You’re welcome just to come browse and buy.”

Donated clothes will be exchanged for tokens at £1 for high street items, £6 for mid range, and £15 for designer.

People can also buy tokens and mix and match towards something new.

Clothes for donation only can also be dropped off at the club in advance.

Parking is free and proceeds will go to Hartlepool Big Town Tidy Up.
