If you're using this Easter holidays for a bit of a sort out, this is our latest list of items that we need in order to fulfill some outstanding requests. We are getting uniform requests for children starting new schools. Any lightly worn uniform that you no longer need, particularly logo items would be a huge benefit to us. We kindly ask that all donations are thoroughly cleaned and checked before donating. Items on our needs list will be gifted without delay so need to be in a good to go condition. Please do not currently donate clothing items not on the list. We do not have the space to store them. Thank you so much for your continued support ⭐️We are open Monday & Wednesday mornings next week between 9:30-12. Please note we are closed on bank holiday days and reopen Friday 14th April.

Without them we wouldn’t be able to reach families further afield that need our help. Check out their immaculately efficient packing! 💕 ... See MoreSee Less
