Halloween is on its way, so you may start looking over the drawer and making thoughts for this year’s fascinating costume.
But no worries, here we announce our 1st Halloween Costume Swap event on Oct. 16th!
Please come along after your dropping off in the morning, with your old but still in-good-condition costume, to the gathering station in front of the office and receive a voucher to trade it to another one on the event day.
We are also planning a creative hands-on station during the event for a sustainable, green Halloween.
For details, check the attached poster Green Halloween – Costume Swap and furthermore if you kindly have time to help with our exiting new event, please register for volunteer gathering costume and setting up/cleaning up by clicking on the link below.
