Cool School Uniforms in North Lanarkshire receives funding boost from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland

As part of its ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, and further to its regular ‘Back to School’ summer donations, Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has donated £250 to Cool School Uniforms to help boost its efforts to provide winter clothing and coats to children who need them.

Formed in 2017, Cool School Uniforms (Coatbridge) is a School Uniform Bank that is a volunteer-led group aiming to improve the lives of children in Coatbridge and the surrounding area experiencing financial hardship by providing them with a brand-new school uniform, as well as clothing and equipment required for the school day.

The group accepts new and out-grown school uniform donations, and its success in supporting hundreds of families has seen its guidelines used to establish other Cool School Uniform Banks in neighbouring Airdrie and as far away as Dumfries and Galloway.
