We wanted to let the Clacks community know about our upcoming plans for operating our annual School Uniform Bank that is more needed this year than ever before. Last year we supported 358 children to return to school with dignity and pride and we hoping to support a wider group of children again this year particularly families most affected by COVID.
The donation dates are as follows:
Monday 29th June – 10th July 2020.
The Gate Centre. Strictly between 3pm and 5pm.
Tesco and Morrison’s superstores – anytime.
The very final day for collections at The Gate Centre is Wednesday 15th July 2020. Please do not drop off donations after this date as we will be unable to accept items due to limited storage space available.
Please can you let your family and friends know of these dates and that we welcome donations of NEW and good quality used school clothing and equipment such as school bags, lunch boxes and stationery to distribute to vulnerable children.
Due to the increased referrals for support via our foodbank, there is insufficient room to operate the project from The Gate Centre this year.
Therefore, we will operate the project from the Ludgate Church for sorting donations, and the Open Week will take place at Alloa’s Town Hall. Dates are as follows:
Open Week. Alloa Town Hall. Monday 20th July to Friday 24th July 2020. Opening times: 11am to 3pm.
If further information is required, please do not hesitate to call The Gate Centre on 01259 218766.
