Preloved school uniform

Can you Help by Donating Your Old School Uniform? 

Preloved Uniform helps families who struggle to afford  new school uniform for their children. We hope to place  good quality second-hand clothing in homes (for free)  where the child would otherwise not have their basic  uniform needs met. Our service relies on the generosity of  families like you who are able to donate good quality items  that are no longer being used.  

We need school clothes, shoes, coats, PE kits for children  aged from 4 to 18 years. We would also be keen to have  donations of new underwear and socks. 

Donations can be dropped off at our office at Staveley  Methodist Church Mon-Thur (9am-2.30pm) or, if transport  is a problem, then please email  

to arrange collection.  

Many thanks
