Swap Shops

Unfortunately The Community Furniture Project are no longer able to support the Hungerford Swap Shops. If you have access to a large van and would be willing to pick up all of the leftover items and take them to the Community Furntiture Project premises in Newbury, please contact us: heat_hungerford@yahoo.com. We’d love to be able to run this popular event again in future.

What is a Swap Shop?

It’s a bit like a jumble sale but no money changes hands. You can donate household items that you no longer need and/or come along and take things away that you would like yourself. The idea is to encourage us to recycle and not to put things in the bin or take them to the tip. Anything not rehomed on the day will be donated to the Community Furniture Project, a fantastic local charity.

Here’s what people said about previous events:

“Brilliant, love it” Leza Ali

“Brings communities together and they communicate with each other, instead of on the computer. I’ve spoken to people here I hardly know and I’ve lived in Hungerford for years” Terry McDonald
“Excellent idea to swap things. Especially for people who don’t have a lot and they don’t need to feel embarrassed about taking things away. We’re a throw away society  and we waste so much good quality stuff” Louise Harrison
“The Hungerford swap shop seems to be going from strength to strength regarding the increasing numbers of people attending” Joe McKay, The Community Furniture Project
