For the better part of 80 years, a biannual charity event has been putting clothes on the backs of customers and vulnerable children alike. Hosted by Barnardos Australia and the Peter Pan Committee, the Peter Pan Winter Op Shop brings together donations from everyday Aussies as well as designer brands for a three-day event of clothing bargains. All the proceeds go to Barnardos, a charity dedicated to helping vulnerable children who suffer from abuse or neglect.

The upcoming Peter Pan Winter Op Shop will be hosted at the Paddington RSL from Friday, June 2, to Sunday, June 4. On offer will be a massive haul of wearable items, including a surplus of designer goods, pre-loved favourites, vintage pieces or end-of-season stock from local retailers.

Donations are still welcome and encouraged, so if your wardrobe is overflowing with outfits you never wear anymore, this is a great reason to send them to a new home.

Your clothes will join a catalogue next to brands like Bianca Spender, Sass & Bide and Zimmermann. If you want to take it a step further, you can also volunteer to help set up, manage and pack away the event. Check the Barnardos website to find out how.

The Peter Pan Winter Op Shop runs from 10.30am to 5pm on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, then 10.30am to 3pm on Sunday, June 4. For more information, visit the website.
