This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Fashion shoppers with a conscience are invited to get their kit off and swap it with friends for charity.

The Undress for Uganda event is the ideal way to get a bargain new wardrobe for Christmas while raising cash for abandoned children.

Entry is £5 and each item costs £5 – all proceeds go directly to the Child's I Foundation.

Everyone is encouraged to bring 5-10 articles of clothing in good condition that can be sold for £5 each.

Child's I is a charity developed with leading experts in social care in the UK and Uganda to combat the growing problem of child abandonment.

"I spent four and a half months in Uganda working with abandoned children and it is amazing the difference even a few pounds organiser Lara Gordon, 27, from Putney.

"I got involved with Child's I because it is so different from other charities and they encourage their supporters to really get involved as well as raising cash."

Lucy Buck, founder of the Child's I Foundation, added: "It's a really exciting idea and we hope to get a lot of visitors to the event. This really is recycling at its best!"

To get involved, find out more or arrange to donate clothes, shoes or accessories, contact Lara at [email protected] For more information on the foundation, visit www.childsifoundation.org
