A LACK of interest in a Sidmouth clothes swapping event for charity has prompted organisers to change the venue and slash ticket prices.

Diane Main, owner of Georgie Pies, and Samantha Nichol, owner of Secret Wardrobe arranged the clothes swap to be held at Woolbrook Church Hall on Friday, January 30 but they say feedback from the public has been limited.

Diane said: "We didn't want to cancel the swap because it will be a really fun night so we decided to change the venue to a smaller one."

The evening will go ahead as planned next Friday but will take place at the Secret Wardrobe, the Parade, Old Fore Street in Sidmouth between 6 and 8pm.

Diane added: "Because the Secret Wardrobe is smaller the evening will be more intimate.

"We also changed the time because it will enable people to come straight from work instead of having to go home first.

"We would like people to bring their aunts and nieces-the more the merrier and it will be a fun girlie evening."

The price of the tickets has been reduced from £5 to £2 and will include a glass of wine, nibbles and automatic entry into the raffle.

A variety of raffle prizes supplied by the local business community will be on offer.

All of the proceeds from the evening will go to Breast Cancer UK

Tickets can be bought from Georgie Pies and the Secret Wardrobe.
