This ladies-only event at Ascension Church, Thorold Road, SO18 1HZ will combine a three-course meal with the opportunity to rummage, play dressing up and come away with some new-to-you clothes for just £8.

All profits will go to Waterfall Trust, a charity helping local women fighting addictions, and Southampton City Mission's Clothing Bank, which is based at the venue. 

Organiser Emma Nichols says: "Ascension is the perfect venue for this event – we’ll have a separate kitchen, a dining room and the whole worship space for the clothes. Any leftovers will be sorted and moved to the Clothing Bank’s storage room at the end.
"Swishing is always huge fun but this is also an opportunity for local women to connect, catch up, relax and play in a safe space."
Guests are welcome to bring their own alcohol. Clothing to be dropped if from 5pm, doors open at 7.30, dinner at 7.45. Volunteers and raffle prizes most welcome too.
