#childsafety | School uniform swap shop to open in Accrington Market Hall

The Hyndburn School Uniform Swap Shop will be opening next month to help families and encourage recycling.

Located inside Accrington Market Hall, Accrington, Lancashire, the Maundy Relief initiative will be open to all who need to use it from Monday, April 12. Donations of school uniform are invited to help them in their efforts to provide a uniform to every child who needs one in Hyndburn.

Lucy Hardwick, manager at Maundy Relief, said: “All parents are familiar with the large expense of school uniforms and know too well that children very quickly outgrow their school wear.

“We wanted to combine efforts across our borough and offer a one-stop-shop for recycling these uniforms, giving help to those who need it. Families can donate their uniform that is no longer needed and if they need to, collect a new uniform from us.

“The more people that take part in this initiative the better, we are encouraging PTAs, schools and charities to work alongside us and we want children to be proud to use this service, as eco warriors for Hyndburn.”
