This week we received a generous donation of £675 from the families of the 2011 Team at the Linlithgow Rose Football Club.
Glen Moon (Volunteer Coach) told us “we first heard about the School Bank through their PE Kit Appeal. The team and their families wanted to help as many children across West Lothian enjoy their sports and PE without having to worry about having the right kit to wear. The School Bank does an invaluable job, and we would like to thank them for continuing to support families throughout the County”.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this donation. A greater number of families are feeling the pressure of rising costs and are struggling to provide all the necessary clothing, footwear and equipment needed to ensure their children takes part in every day activities such as PE – this donation will help us to continue to support children across West Lothian.
Not having the right kit has an affect on the child but it can also have an affect on the parent/carer. One Referrer said “the school had flagged up that the children hadn’t been adhering to school colours for gym and the parents were unable to financially buy the items required. The School Bank supplied all the items needed for these three children and the school no longer had an issue with the children’s appearance. The parents were less stressed too.”
