School Uniform Bank Donations Guide

As a general rule of thumb, please only donate items that you would be proud to give a close friend or family member. Items should be laundered and unmarked.

We aim to be able to supply local children with any, or all, items of the school uniform. Therefore we are looking for donations of:

  • All new and preloved uniform, shoes and PE kit
  • Coats and Jackets
  • New school socks and tights
  • New schoolbags
  • New pencil cases and stationery

We do get requests for specific items, and will post these to our Facebook Page, however if you have something and would like to donate it, please feel free to contact us.

Condition of Items:

All clothing should be freshly laundered. If you have a lot of items to donate, it would really help us if it was sorted and bagged by size and gender.

If clothing has been in storage please consider washing it again before donating to us, as this saves our volunteers having to take on this task.

We pride ourselves on passing on items in great condition. It makes all the difference to the family on the receiving end. If you are not sure whether your clothing donation is suitable or not, a good test is if you would give it to the children of a good friend? If the answer is yes, we are happy to receive it.

Getting your donation to us:

Simply check the Drop Off Points page for up-to-date information on donation points and opening times.

Please do not leave the items at our facility without arranging with a member of the team first of all, as this can be a fire hazard and causes difficulty for the other organisations who share our office space.

At certain times of the year, such as end-of-term, we do aim to run collection points at as many of the local primary and secondary schools as possible. Please keep an eye out for these in school newsletters, or consider mentioning it to the office team at your child's school.

Thank you.
