A swish show for Bradford recycling event
1:49pm Saturday 23rd June 2012 in News
The world’s largest training shoe – the size of a car – arrived in Bradford city centre today.
The trainer, measuring four metres by 1.5 metres by 1.7 metres, and the equivalent of a size 454 shoe, was the star of the show at a “swishing” party, arranged by Bradford Council and Yorkshire Air Ambulance, in City Hall to mark national Recycle Week.
Swishing involves swapping old dresses, trousers, coats, handbags or belts with someone else.
People could put any good condition items for swapping in a bag and receive tokens for each item which could be used to swap items at the swishing event.
The entrance fee was £2 with all proceeds going to the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
