Mandela Day, Vintage with love

Wondering how to do your bit this Mandela Day? We need your help and this is how you can get involved: Clear out your cupboards and bring the contents to the V&A Waterfront on Mandela Day, 18 July. From your clean out, bring all your gently worn but still lovely dresses, tops, scarves, hats and shoes and meet the gang at Workshop 17. Here you can use your precious 67 Minutes by sorting, pricing and repacking all the items donated on the day. To entertain the kids, we’ll have sporting celebrities or they can entertain themselves in our Kidz2Kidz library.
