Salvation Army UK and Ireland Territory with Penrith Church initiates to provide New school uniforms to children


Ahead of starting school term in September 2023, the Salvation Army United Kingdom and Ireland Territory’s with the Penrith church has initiated to provide new and unused school uniforms to struggling families across the Cumbrian Community.

The Salvation Army United Kingdom and Ireland Territory is a UK-based Non-profitable organisation which aims to serve vulnerable sections of society, including victims, children, older people and families.


While initiating to provide new school uniforms to the new batch of children, Major Carole Donaldson, the Penrith Church leader, extended his pleasure.

He said, “The school summer holidays already bring added expense to families, and to face extra outgoings for mandatory uniforms that children require for the new school year, can be very costly.”

Therefore, the Penrith Church has initiated to provide new and unused school uniforms to struggling families across the Cambrian Community.

As per the update, The items available cover all ages, from two-year-olds in nursery to 16-year-olds in high school, and all seasons.

Major Carole Donaldson says:

“We’re a church which understands the importance of working within the local community, and we wanted to offer something that people can find useful, taking the pressure and stress away, as well as building on the existing relationships that we have with families in the area and creating new ones. This also gives us the opportunity to open our doors and see how we can offer support in many other ways too.”


From clothing to Emergency Food Parcels, the Penrith church is stepping forward to help people to push their poverty. The Uniform Project by the Salvation Army United Kingdom and the Ireland Territory is an effective initiative to help people struggling with the cost of living crises. The church and The Salvation Army charity have also provided baby children, maternity and adult clothing alongside the uniform project and run a food bank offering food parcel support via a referral three days a week.
