Laindon School Uniform Bank

Laindon School Uniform Bank is a voluntary based community project thats aims to connect families with FREE preloved school uniform and childrens fancy dress.

We do our best to save families money on uniform, P.E kit, coats, shoes, school bags and so much more, while at the same time reducing the amount of unnecessary waste going to landfill

We are open Saturday morning's between 10am-12pm (Fortnightly)

at Manor Mission Church in Laindon.

Every item is kindly donated by either local schools or by the amazing community we have around us, this is how EVERY ITEM can be ABSOLUTELY FREE to take, no strings attached!!

This offer is open to EVERYONE.

Please pop along and have a look around, we have SO MUCH to offer !!

The team really just want to help our local community save some money and good uniform from landfill.

You do not have to bring any uniform to swap/trade out, however if you wish to donate you can.

OVER 40,000 Items Handed Out For Free Since We Opened in August 2019 !!!

On Saturday 18th September 2021 we reached over 10,000 items handed out for FREE since we opened, then on Saturday 27th August 2022 we reached 20,000, in May 2023 we reached 30,000 and by January 2024 we hit 40,000!!
It's just the best feeling for us all at the Laindon School Uniform Bank to see a child's face light up when they spot an item of fancy dress they then get to take home or a parent who gets to walk out with arms full of uniform knowning it's not cost a single penny.
