The Kindness Collective at Kyneton is hosting an Op Shop Fashion Parade fundraiser this month to help raise funds for the Kyneton Foodbank.

Amid cost-of-living pressures, the Kindness Collective is seeing daily increases of people signing up to use the foodbank and coming in for soup kitchen lunches.

“The fashion parade fundraiser will help us raise funds to keep our shelves stocked and offer more wholesome goods, like protein and dairy, for people to take home and cook quality meals,” operations manager Julie Devlin said.

“We think this will be a great fun way to show off all of the amazing clothes we have in the op shop and have a bit of fun at the same time.

“I’d like to thank our volunteers for organising this and the community for its ongoing support, because the donations that we get through the op shop and via the foodbank are incredible.”

All profit from what is sold in the op shop goes back into purchasing food for the foodbank and kitchen.

The Op Shop Fashion Parade fundraiser will be held at 2pm on Sunday June 16 in the Kyneton Mechanics Institute.

Tickets are $25 and include afternoon tea, a complimentary glass of bubbles, prizes, fun and games, plus raffles galore!
Tickets via Trybooking (‘Opshop Fashion’).
