The Back 2 School Appeal

With the rising need for school uniform specific reloved clothing banks, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the everyday financial hardships families are facing is meaning parents are battling another challenge: cost of school uniform. With families tightening their belts across the board, forgoing trips, days outs & even choosing between paying bills and buying new uniform.

Partnering with Edward Cooke Family Law & South Coast Home Care we’re asking you to help us to help the families in our community to be able to send their children in to a new school year with new uniform. All you have to do is pop either good condition second-hand or new school uniform & school supplies in to one of our Donation Points and we will do the rest!

By teaming up with the Rotary Club of Chichester, we will ensure that those who are most in need will receive something that is usually unobtainable. Last year, thanks to their tireless work, they were able to help over 500 families who couldn't afford even the basic of school uniform items.
