Swap Shops

As part of our Big Green Month, we are launching Downing Students’ Swap Shops at some of our properties across the country.

It’s really simple to take part. All you have to do is bring some unwanted items and swap them for something new that you see and love. No cash will be exchanged or value added to items. It is simply swapping items for others. 

See our T’s and C’s below.
