Uniforms - Crosby Housing Association charity shop



Good morning 


I am the temporary shop manager for  Crosby Housing Association charity shop in Waterloo. Last year the shop did a school uniform scheme, which provided school uniforms for free, to parents of children who needed them. As this was so successful last year, we have decided to do it again this year, but we need help.


Please find the link to our Facebook post about the scheme below


Donations of school uniform of any size, age or colour would be appreciated. The uniforms will be available in our shop, throughout August to anyone who needs them. Also we are hoping to shut the shop for the afternoon on the 14th of August, so we can hang out all the uniforms, and allow people to come in and find what they need. We will be providing time slots to allow for social distancing measures, to eliminate people having to wait or queue, and so our volunteers can provide assistance.


Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me on 0151 665 0230


Kind regards


Olivia Watts

Every autumn, the Department for Education (DfE) publishes data on how much money each school is receiving that year.

Then I use these numbers to work out the latest impact of funding cuts to your school.

But this year is different: the DfE is withholding these vital figures on school funding.


Please help me tell Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, to release this data now.


For the past 5 years, the DfE has always published this data before the autumn budget.

But that day has come and gone.

While the Government still claims it’s putting more money into schools than ever before, you and I know this isn’t true.

Even the UK Statistics Authority has raised “serious concerns” with the DfE about its misleading use of school funding statistics.

Now more than ever we need the real data so we can show you what’s really happening to schools.


We expect every Government to adhere to basic rules and be transparent about how they are running our schools and services.

The public deserves to know the truth.

Thank you for your help,

Andrew Baisley
