Introduction: We live in challenging times and the first thing we think about is food on the table and how to pay the heating bills. But did you know that many families struggle to provide essential clothing items for their children. We wanted to help, yes, because we care, but also because we know how it feels to make do when you shouldn’t have to and that is the foundation for our community initiative.
At St Andrews Kids Clothing Bank we have three main aims:
1) To give children and families the helping hand they deserve.
2)To be a partner in the Community.
3) To be here long term.
How does it work? Wereceive donations from the public and pass these items on to local families who need them. We can help children and young people from birth to 16yrs old.
What can we provide? Good quality pre-owned tops, t-shirts & polo shirts, jumpers & cardigans, jeans & trousers, shorts, joggers & leggings, dresses & skirts, shoes & slippers, hoodies, fleeces & jackets. baby clothes.
We can also supply new nightwear, underwear, vests socks & tights. For hygiene reasons these items will always be supplied new; if you need them then please do just ask.

We can also source other items like baby equipment or bedding; these are subject to availability, but please do ask and we will always try our best to find what you need.
