The warm weather seems to have finally arrived, and spring term is almost over! As we move into summer and even warmer weather, Uttlesford Children's Clothing Bank would just like to let you know that we have really good quantities of summer school uniform and PE kit if you have any families at your school who may struggle to buy these items. It's really important to us that children feel happy and comfortable in their clothes, so everything we give out has been checked by us to ensure it meets our high standards.
You can refer a family using the Frontline app, or by using the form on our website. https://www.uccb.org.uk/referrals We are usually able to drop clothing off at school for collection by the family.
We are starting to take requests directly from families via Facebook, where they can send us a message. Our Facebook page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/uttlesfordchildrensclothingbank Please feel free to share this information in your weekly newsletter.
Finally, alongside uniform, we can also provide shoes, trainers and clothes for outside of school.
All the best,
Emma, Madi and Cath.
