It’s time to donate at Idlewells Shopping Centre

With the summer holidays now here, Idlewells Shopping Centre has introduced a ‘Donation Station’ for shoppers to donate new and second-hand school uniforms to help those in need in the community.

Back to school shopping can be an expensive time for families, even with lots of stores such as The Works offering great deals on the essentials! And as we head into the school holidays, the cost of new school uniform is often at the forefront of many parents’ minds. The new ‘Donation Station’ aims to the alleviate the pressure of cost when it comes to sending children back to school this year.

Located in the heart of Idlewells Shopping Centre, between Cafe Moda and JD Sports, the ‘Donation Station’ is now open for donations of jumpers, polo shirts, shirts, ties, trousers, skirts, shorts, blazers, cardigans, dresses, pinafores etc. The donated items will then be made available to those in need in the community. 

Idlewells Shopping Centre would like to thank the woodwork students at ATTFE college for building this fantastic ‘Donation Station’ and to Kayleigh Gent for designing it. A special thanks also goes to Pauline Copeland and Barry Marshall for their help with organising the build. 

Visit us today to donate your old school uniforms to help those in need!
