Have you spotted our new PINK Clothing Bank?

We are delighted to announce that we are supporting the Yorkshire Children’s Trust –  a local charity based in Elland just outside Halifax.

Since 2011, the charity has set out to help children and their families cope with the emotional and financial strain of many life-changing illnesses, something the founders of the charity understand because the charity was set up after their own children went through the harsh treatment for childhood cancers.

 You can find more information on their website, www.yctrust.uk

 The textile bank is clearly visible in the school yard.  Please donate any unwanted clothing and help us to raise money for the YCT.
