Donate Items

Update 31st July 2021

Our school uniform appeal ‘SmartStart’ is well underway and we would be really grateful for items of brand new, non branded school uniform which are listed in the column below.  We are able to accept donations of new school uniform at the door during the appeal and you can find us at 26 Wood Street, Manchester M3 3EF.  Most supermarkets offer online school uniform ordering and any donations direct from retailers will be greatly appreciated.

We are now able to accept donations of the items listed below at the door but we can also collect from certain areas.  If you’d like to book a collection, firstly thank you for choosing to support us and secondly, please drop us an email to with your name, contact telephone number, full address of collection and a description of what you are donating.  If you are able to purchase brand new items that can be sent directly from retailers these would be greatly appreciated and our address is 26 Wood Street, Manchester M3 3EF.  

If you are able, you can make a secure donation online. Your support is so important to us as we will be able to purchase brand new items for the children that we support.
