Smalls for All
3 weeks 7 hours ago
Last year, the People’s Postcode Trust gave us £8,000 to help meet the increased demand for pants for those in need in Scotland. One of the organisations benefiting from this wonderful extra funding is The School Bank West Lothian, a charity that supports families facing financial hardship by providing the clothes needed for children to attend school.
Below is Collette collecting 5,100 pairs of new pants from our warehouse. She told us, “Having the necessary items, including brand new underwear, affects children's self-esteem and confidence. Knowing you can change for PE or after school clubs, most of which is done in front of their peers, helps our young people feel confident when they have clean and good condition underwear.
“In addition, it has a positive impact on families’ finances and their mental health and wellbeing, by reducing anxiety about providing for their children, reducing the likelihood of bullying, increasing school attendance and ultimately leading to improved life chances. Without the support of Smalls for All, The School Bank West Lothian would struggle to be able to fulfil the demand for these items in our packs. Thank you to everyone who donated, we are truly grateful for your kindness.”
Thank you to you and to the People’s Postcode Trust for helping us to help them, Maria. 🩲🩳🙏
