REDDITCH Labour Party's annual School Uniform Bank has been hailed a huge success, with more people than ever using the vital service.

The uniform bank, held at the Redi Centre, gave a chance for needy families to gain help with kitting their children out with uniforms, shoes, and socks.

Labour councillor Joe Baker, who first started the idea, said: "This year's uniform bank run by the Redditch Labour Party was the busiest yet. We managed to help families from all kinds of backgrounds who are struggling financially to get uniforms free of charge.

"It was overwhelming to receive the comments of thanks and appreciation from the children's guardians. Some explaining how difficult their circumstances have become showing us the need for this vital service.

"A big thanks goes also to Redi Centre for the use of its venue and to all the parents, schools and volunteers who helped make this event successful."

Leader of the council Bill Hartnett, who spent the day helping, added: "Redditch labour party held our 4th school uniform bank on Saturday this is a great initiative led by cllr Joe baker and I thank him for organising it again this year.

"Redditch parents and the cooperation of local schools made the day a great success ensuring good quality school uniforms found good homes so it's a win win solution for parents who donated and who received."
