School uniforms - new and recycled
In partnership with Swansea Council, we have set up a new project ABC123 which is all about affordable school uniforms. We accept donated uniforms that are no longer required, launder them and then re-sell them at a fraction of the cost of new uniforms.
We have a large quantity of uniforms available at our premises in the town centre and we would welcome you to come and see what is available. Please contact us on 07494 966980 to arrange a suitable time to visit.
