Would you like to help?
The Second-Hand Uniforms team are a friendly bunch and always looking for new recruits! There is no requirement to commit to all dates, you can come help to as few or as many collections and sales as suits you.
On collection mornings, volunteers arrive at school at 8.30 am (time required: roughly an hour or two) to sort through the donations received. Each item must pass a quality check before acceptance and those items are stored/put away correctly according to size/type.
On Sunday sale mornings, volunteers arrive at school at 9 am to collect stock from storage (on school site) and arrange/lay out donations by size/type on display tables in the New Hall. During the sale, the team help parents select uniform and sports kit.
At the end of the sale (11.30am) – all remaining stock is carefully packed back into their respective boxes by group/item and returned to storage for the next sale (finish 12pm).
Volunteers slots: 9 to 10.30 am (set-up and start of sale), 10.30 am to 12pm (end of sale and pack-up); you’re very welcome to come for the whole three hours of course!
