Visiting the Fitzroy Night market?

Like homemade baking or a sausage sizzle? Our youth will be fundraising for their end of year event. Come along and treat yourself.

Welcome to the AFSG Clothing Exchange

It is nearly a year since with funding from the Local Board the exchange was built right behind the Old School Building in Tryphena, where we have our office. Since then, the shelves have always been full with donated clothes, and people in the know have made good use to keep their families well-dressed.

It is looked after by volunteers, so users are asked to tidy up as they go. If you are dropping off clothes, please make sure they are clean and have no holes in them, i.e. that they will be of value to someone else.

Donations for clothing are gratefully received. The money goes towards the work of the Aotea Family Support Group.
