We provided a whopping 960 uniform packs for young people returning to school this month, ensuring each child could go to school with their head held high and ready to take on the new school year! Many of their families are facing daily struggles and our service provided a vital support. We couldn’t have managed to do this mammoth task without the generosity and kindness of every single person and organisation who supported us over the summer period, including:
A whopping 242 uniform packs were donated by sponsors so a child could start the new school year looking smart, just like their classmates. It was clear that each uniform pack was put together with a great deal of thought and we appreciate the time and effort taken as well as your generosity.
Everyone who donated brand new uniform, jackets, water bottles, school bags, PE kit, footwear and stationery etc. These donations are vital too and it allows us to provide packs needed, particular at the later end of the summer holidays, when we need to have stock here to provide a large number of uniform packs at very short notice.
All those who made generous monetary donations on-line, large and small, this allows us to buy the stock we need, again so so important.
Organisations and Funders who held events, donated stock or made a donation to support our campaign. A-Maz-Ing!
Everyone who donated excellent quality second-hand donations. We top up our uniform packs with the excellent quality items that look like new and reduce landfill.
Those who like and share our FB/Insta/Twitter/LinkedIn posts, as well as talk to their friends and families about how they can get involved and help support this campaign.
All those who help by having one of our red collection bins in the community.
Abbie, Roz, Janine, and Collette in the office and our valuable Volunteers, including the Board of Trustees, who all work tirelessly behind the scenes.
A big THANK YOU to you all, we couldn’t do it with each and every one of you!
The demand for our service continues all year round so please continue to support us and watch our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn pages for updates.
