Redditch – School Uniform Bank 20/08/2022
Please see below taken from Redditch Uniform Bank Facebook page:
We are pleased to announce that this year’s uniform Bank event will be held on Saturday 20th August in the Kingfisher Centre in the closed Next shop – from 10am until noon.
The event sees thousands of items saved from landfill by collecting up used and outgrown uniform and redistributing it at a public event.
Cllr Joe Baker says “The Redditch Labour Party and Partners School Uniform Bank is back again for its 10th year. I wouldn’t have guessed that the need for this service would have grown over the years like it has, with more families than ever needing help.
The cost of living has forced more people to look to alternatives for help and the Uniform bank provides that much needed assistance. Not only does it help financially but also it help with recycling stopping unwanted clothes going to landfill.
You can help by donations of good quality second hand Uniforms and Shoes, or you can purchase new shoes, Socks, and non labelled items and donate them to our stated donation points.
Labour believes in supporting our communities and this has always been the case with the School Uniform bank.
Donation points are open – please pass on any uniform items which you no longer need. We accept branded and generic items, as well as shoes and coats.
You can drop items at ◦
– Kingfisher Centre Customer Services
– Willow Trees Community Centre, Church Hill
– Inspire, Winyates
Please ensure that any items donated are clean and in good condition
