The charity is providing second-hand school trousers, summer dresses, school skirts, shirts and more for families in need of extra financial support.

Grace Gomez, charity founder, said on her blog, on Inyourarea: "We really want to help parents at this time by removing some of the financial burden and stress associated with buying school uniforms."
