In order to support Blacon families who are struggling with the cost of living, we will provide good-as-new second hand coats and shoes for children, from a store based at Trinity Hall on Norris Road.
Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.
Alongside the food support provided to Blacon residents by Blacon Beacon, there will be an outlet for families living in Blacon to access free coats and shoes for children. Kidsbank charity will collaborate with us for this project. The store will be in Trinity Hall. It will need shelving and clothes racks installed to enable the maximum amount of stock. Additional storage to keep out-of-season stock may also be needed. We will recruit staff (initially one part-time manager, and then in due course also a part-time assistant) and also volunteers whose role is to manage the receipt and distribution of the stock.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
When families are struggling to make ends meet due to the rising cost of living, and their children constantly growing, any support in providing the necessary clothing for the children will help greatly with their household finances. So the benefits are financial for the households in poverty, but also in the mental and physical wellbeing for all members of the family, through alleviating that financial stress.
Steps to get it done:
Other expected impacts: Parents with lessened stress levels with assisting household budget Children with dignity and comfort of having good quality well-fitting coats and shoes.
