Afternoon Tea at Stanmer House

In our house, our weekends are largely dominated by reading and essays, so in a bid to liven them up/ actually do something with our time off we sat down and compiled a 'things to do in Brighton' list. Our aim is to choose something off the list each weekend and hopefully prevent our weekends from blurring into one.


Clothes Swish for Target TB

On Wednesday evening, a couple of friends and myself headed down to the Queen's Hotel on the seafront in my current hometown Brighton. I was told that the charity Target TB were holding a clothes swish fund-raising event there. I had never heard of a clothes swish before, so for those who had as little a clue as me, it basically works like this: you take some of your unwanted clothes, hand them in when you get there, they lay them all out on the table, and you pick up whatever takes your fancy. A kind-of mix between a clothes-swapping event and a jumble sale.

Although you had to bring a minimum of one item, for obvious reasons, many people used this as an opportunity to have a good clear-out and brought along bags-full of unwanted items. Taking along a few tops, I ended up taking away shoes for my mum, and another pair of shoes and a dress for my nan.
