MORAY SCHOOL BANK LAUNCHES WINTER JACKET APPEAL04/10/2019
Debi Weir from Moray School Bank launched the charity’s winter appeal alongside Richard Lochhead MSP at his constituency office today [4th October].
Moray School Bank offers new school uniform and warm winter clothing to children living in financial hardship across Moray. The charity accepts donations of new and ‘as new’ school uniform and warm winter items, which can be dropped off at Richard Lochhead’s constituency office or the school bank drop off points across Moray.
Debi Weir, Development Manager at Moray School Bank said:
“This year we have been inundated with requests for school uniform already dealing with 280 referrals since July and as the cold weather hits our requests for winter support have started to arrive.
“We are blown away by the support of the community in Moray and hope that they will get behind our winter campaign to support our children in Moray.”
Richard Lochhead MSP added:
“Over the last few years the team at Moray School Bank have been doing an incredible job supporting local families in financial hardship and ensuring that kids have access to the clothing they need.
“I know that the efforts of the school bank are making a huge difference to families and kids right across Moray and this winter I’m supporting their winter appeal for warm coats and jackets.
“I would encourage those who can to also get behind the school bank’s winter campaign. Folks looking to donate can drop off any new or ‘as new’ jackets at my office or at one of the many drop off points across Moray.”
