Pupils walk the extra mile for Foodbank charity


PUPILS at Twiss Green Community Primary School in Culcheth were allowed to come into school in their trainers on the last day of term, in exchange for the donation of their pre-loved school shoes, which they had outgrown.

Warrington Foodbank School Uniform Shop receives many requests from families in need of uniform, and in particular school shoes, which can be an impossible expense for some families.

The generous shoe donations from the children at Twiss Green will help families in need provide a pair of shoes for their children. Many of the shoes donated have already found new owners, and will be greatly appreciated when the new term commences in September.
The school uniform is located in Warrington Golden Square, near Primark and is offering a warm welcome to all families.
It is open to everyone and not just service users. It is not means tested and people are free to simply donate items or to pick up new items that they may need for the new term.

Manager David McDonald said: “We have an abundant supply of uniforms from most schools across the area. Some items are pre-loved and some are brand new. We look forward to welcoming as many families as possible over the summer months.”
