The school year is ending and so the Uniform Project, run by the Morecambe Bay Foodbank is gearing up for a big uniform drive over the summer holidays to collect and re-distribute uniform to children in need of it before the new school year in September.
The Uniform Project is working in partnership with Lancaster City Council and collection bins will be in place at Lancaster Town Hall, Morecambe Town Hall, Salt Ayre Leisure Centre and in Preston Town Hall over the summer holiday.
The project is looking for clean, gently used and undamaged school uniform of all kinds for children aged 4-16, including winter coats and shoes.
There are also Uniform drives taking place in various schools this week including Torrisholme School and Bowerham School and also at Lancaster University’s Environment Centre.
If you would like to get involved with the Uniform Project or you would like to donate time, money or uniform and have any questions you can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/theuniformproject/
