Community Christmas Event

Community Christmas Event

A SUSTAINABLE Christmas event OVER 2 WEEKENDS – not to be missed!

This Christmas, we totally understand the cost of living is hitting us all.  We wanted to bring the community together and not only enjoy some FREE activities but we are holding a SWAP, SHOP AND DONATE EVENT too!

Swap, Shop and Donate shop


Swap, Shop & Donate!

(Pre-loved Toys)

  1. Bring in your unwanted toys, games, puzzles, children’s books etc for donation at any time from the 17th November leading up to the event at either Worthing Leisure Centre or Lancing Manor Leisure Centre.
  2. If you wish to swap them, you will be issued a ticket for every item (up to five items) so that you can bring the ticket on the day and “spend” your ticket on new (to you) items. 
  3. If you have nothing to swap but want to come and browse, we will be taking small donations in return for items. 
  4. You are more than welcome to donate any items even if you don’t wish to shop or buy

Swap, Shop & Donate T & C’s

Thank you.

We very much hope you enjoy our Community Christmas Event and can take home a bargain with the swap, shop and donate event.

By swapping, it allows people to acquire new items without spending money and promotes a more sustainable lifestyle by reducing waste.  Please help the environment this Christmas and swap and shop at South Downs Leisure!
