Sunday 29th May

Kudos Gallery – Paddington
If you’d like to support The Free Market project,
here are a few things you can do which would be really helpful to me:

Save up plastic bags from your house (regular supermarket plastic bags)
and bring them into Kudos Gallery.

If you work or have any friends in hospitality or retail, and can you
ask them to ask their boss if they can pass on surplus food/stock that
will otherwise get thrown out? I can arrange pick up if necessary.

If you have any junk that could go to a good home, let us know.
Some of the things that people have donated so far are books,
CDs, DVDs, old appliances, old furniture, clothes, kitchen stuff.

Email if you’d like to help out!
