We’ve recently been informed of a service ran by volunteers in the local area, which provides school uniforms, nursery items, coats, electrical and special occasion and fancy dress outfits for families and children. They have also began to collect toys ahead of Christmas coming up. The items are all either at a low cost or free with the option to make a donation.

The service runs a Facebook page under the name of ‘Freema Chambers Community School clothing Scheme’. The information for the service can be found below:
