I have just returned 10 bags of uniform to storage that had been requested but had not been collected. I feel bad taking them back but I don't have the room for them to be outside my door indefinitely.
If you no longer need these items please let me know as my time is precious and I am wasting so much of it finding things for people desperate for them but who not only don't collect bit don't communicate.
If you still need these items you will have to request again (I have put them back into stock incase anybody else is waiting on them) and wait until this coming weekend to collect.

Good morning everyone,
As it stands today, I still have 14 bags of uniform awaiting collection following requests since the event. I've contacted everyone with collection details but I will have to return them back into stock at the storage unit if not collected by Sunday evening.
° I will take request messages from Sunday to Friday lunch time via facebook, WhatsApp and the website.
° on Saturday morning I will go to the storage unit with all requests from the week and reply to all messages of availability.
° collections will be available from Saturday until the following Friday morning before returning it back to storage. Thank you to those who have already advised they are collecting over the weekend.
° any urgent requests need to be marked as urgent for immediate collection
There will now be a box marked donations from this Monday outside my door. All donations must be cleaned and in a bag due to covid-19 restrictions and to fall within guidelines.
All donations have to be quarantined for 72 hours before reallocation.
Remember, all the uniform is FREE and collections are contact less. If you wish to contribute in anyway, we have links on the page for our gofundme page and amazon wish list that helps other families in the community.
If anyone has spare storage boxes or clothing rails they wish to donate then they are extremely useful.
Thank you all
Just wanted to let you know that THANKS to all your fantastic donations of school uniform, shoes, coats, bags etc, we have managed to fill or partially fill 167 requests for uniform as of today, from families within our local community.
This has not only benefitted people who needed a little help but has saved hundreds and hundreds of items from landfill and given them a new home.
You are amazing. Thank you ☺️
Somebody asked me for girls grey skirts age 13/14. I have lost the message as I didn't have any. I have recently had 4 x age 14 come in, so if it was you pop me another message x

If you have asked me for uniform and I haven't replied to say it's ready to collect or that I don't have it give me a nudge. I have so many messages that sometimes they get lost and I don't see them.

As always uniform is FREE there is no obligation.

Huge thank you to everybody who volunteered to help out over the last few days and to everybody who has donated uniform and shared my endless posts. Thanks to Winsford Academy for letting me use the room for the last 2 days and Winsford Community Grocery for providing some snacks, food and drinks
Thank you to everybody who came today and took uniform and dropped some change into the buckets. We raised £200.07!!! That's amazing. I will be paying £150 to The Bone Cancer Research Trust as that was our target. We have already raised £155 separately for Teenage Cancer Trust via my husband doing the '100 miles in a month' challenge.
The extra £50.07 will be kept for use for 'emergency purchases' of uniform items.
There is a link to donate directly to Uniform Exchange online, or there is a link on the previous post to donate directly to Bone Cancer fundraiser.
Once again THANK YOU all. You're amazing, I hope you all managed to get something to help you out. Special thanks to whoever left me a bottle and the lady who bought us snacks :).
I am now having a take away tea, a drink and a bath! Signing off for a few days, tired but happy.
