The Meriden Community Centre, which is managed by Watford FC Community Sports and Education Trust, is running a new project for the local community.
They are collecting used school uniforms and we will be giving them away for free to those in need.
Centre manager Vanessa Wright said: “We know that due to the increase in energy and fuel costs during the cost of living crisis, we are all looking to save money wherever possible. Our aim is to support local people by helping them access free second-hand School Wear.”
The project will run from the Meriden Community Centre, in Garsmouth Way WD25 9ET, where they are looking for donations of good quality school uniforms, PE wear, coats, bags & shoes from local schools.
These will be followed up with “sale” days, where residents can then come and get free school wear for their children.
Vanessa said: “We urgently need donations of good quality school wear for the following schools:
“The Grove Academy, Cherry Tree Primary School, St Catherine of Siena Primary, Knutsford Primary School, Parkgate Primary School, Future Academies High School, Queens’ High School, Parmiter’s High School and l St Michael’s High School.”
All donations can be dropped off at the centre Monday to Friday from 10am to 8pm, and on Saturdays from between 10am and 3pm.
