SmartStart 2017

SmartStart 2017

So far in our 3rd year we have reached 2,451 Manchester and Salford Children with school uniform and related accessories like stationery, sportswear and socks (228 more than last year). We have also shared out 1,160 winter coats.

The scheme has provided uniform and other items to the value of £231,291 with 5 weeks to run.

Demand from referrers has been high and we have had fantastic help from suppliers like David Luke, Trespass and Result Coats. We have also had regular donations of school items from many Manchester Businesses, Schools, Churches and Individuals.

A big thank you to everyone who helped us help local children and families. It only works when all the parts come together.
