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 in great condition and freshly laundered. Please label all donations with gender and size, to help our volunteers sort through them as quickly as possible.

If clothing has been in storage please consider washing it again before donating to us, as we do not have washing facilities.

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 our Facebook 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.

Thank you.
