Thank you, from October 21 to March 22 you helped us collect and give out over 1,000 coats
In 2020 you helped us collect and donate over 500 coats… this year we need 1,000!
Huddersfield charity, Uniform Exchange, has issued a plea for the donation of warm winter coats to support vulnerable children across Kirklees as the impact of the pandemic continues to take its toll on local families.
To enable children to access classroom learning during the pandemic, measures introduced in schools include keeping windows open throughout the school day to minimise transmission of the virus, and with temperatures dropping, the need for adequate clothing is even more vital. Having access to a full school uniform and warm coat means a child’s attendance is much more likely to improve and allows them to focus on their learning.
Having your support in these cold winter months will help us ensure all Kirklees children have access to coats and underwear and feel happier to attend school; allowing them to be warm, feel included and are more inclined to learn.
