School Uniform Bank

£530 of £500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 26 months
Our local voluntary group, Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care, recently set up a School Uniform Bank in the area. Our aim is to ensure that every child in our communities has access to the essential items they need for school.

A few weeks ago we got the keys to our premises, which are essential to sort and store uniform. We have been working with a number of local schools to recycle unwanted uniform, and appealing directly via Facebook for items we don't have in stock.

This week alone we have 11 referrals for families who simply cannot afford school uniform for their children. We will ensure that they get what they need before the new term starts.

But to do this we need funds - and urgently!

We've been raising money at local gala days, mainly selling delicious cakes and running lucky dips. But it's not enough to do what we need to do.

So we are appealing for a little help. £5 will help us purchase an essential item of uniform. Lots of £5s will help us buy even more uniform and supplement our fundraising for our rent!

The families we are helping really need your support.

Please check out our work on Facebook: Cumbernauld & Kilsyth School Uniform Bank

We are just local mums and dads trying to help out other parents and carers who are struggling.

Thank you for your support!

Thank you so much for all the generous donations. Every penny to date has been well spent, but the referrals keep coming. While we try to provide as much as we can with pre-loved items that have been donated, we still need to buy quite a bit to supplement those donations. Please keep helping us by spreading the word. Thank you!

Thanks to your support, we have been able to put together a number of school uniform packs. Just a few days ago, we took a whole boot load to one of our local foodbanks. We had 18 referrals from the foodbank in just one day. Without your donations, these families would have really struggled to buy uniform for their children. What a difference those packs have made to so many families. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your generous donations! And for the cash donations handed in to our premises at Lennox House. We are busy working on lots of referrals at the moment, so these funds will be put to very good use. The school uniform bank is really starting to take shape, and we are working hard to make sure this service is in place for as long as it is needed in our communities. We can only do this with the support of our communities, so thank you!
