Weʼre raising £500 to Help set up a School Uniform Bank in the areas of Shipley, Windhill & Wrose and Baildon.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are setting up a School Uniform Bank, initially covering the areas of Shipley, Windhill & Wrose and Baildon.
Our aim is to reduce financial burden on local families whilst promoting recycling and reuse, by collecting and redistributing school uniforms and associated items in good condition to families experiencing financial hardship in the above areas, via a confidential referral system.
We have had a great response from both the local community and schools, as well as other local agencies working with families. Such a great response that we are now running out of storage boxes, storage space, and labels!
We are asking for help to get us started with a pot of money to enable us to buy storage boxes and look into available storage space whilst we begin applying for funding. We are a non-profit project and all funds raised will go into the running of the project. You can find out more at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Shipley-Area-School-Uniform-Bank-1692137427573320/
Thank you for helping us to help others xx.

Thank you for all donations so far! We have received a generous offer of free storage from Windhill Conservative Club and have therefore lowered our target to the amount needed to cover our initial storage box outlay and insurance. Please share and help us reach our target :)

This is the first year that I won't need to buy school uniform so would like to send a donation. I've already donated my son's school uniform. Good luck!!
