The Recycled Designer Clothing Sale has once again benefited women disadvantaged by domestic violence.
Committee member Barb Lawson said she was excited to be able to hand over $8000 to the Southern Highlands Association of Women (SHAW).
"[Its] aim is to create a local hub of information, advocacy and other services for women who have been disadvantaged by domestic violence," she said.
"Currently many needs are not met locally, meaning that women are forced to travel out of the area for assistance.
"Of course we would not be able to hold the sale without the generous donations of designer label clothes from predominantly Southern Highlands women, not to mention the shoppers who queue to enter and take advantage of these bargain-priced goods."
The Uniting Church hosted a plant sale, morning tea, sausage sizzle, a ladies dress shop and a fashion parade to help the committee reach its target.

The committee was also the recipient of a community grant of $1000 from Wingecarribee Shire Council this year.
In 2020 the committee be happy to accept donations (including designer menswear) all year thanks to the convenience of a gratis storage facility at Moss Vale.
