Labelled with Love Project

September 2021: The Labelled With Love team has had a busy time helping provide school uniforms for children returning to school after the summer break. Items go out to the children in packs with a handmade label attached from Trinity Church. Each girl’s pack contains 5 polo shirts or blouses, 2 skirts and 2 cardigans, and the boy’s pack contains 5 polo shirts or shirts, 2 pairs of trousers and 2 jumpers or sweatshirts. In some cases, we have been able to include tights, socks and pants. Some of our pre-loved items have also gone out into these packs and this all helps towards making sure the children have enough school clothing to see them through the school year. We have delivered 33 packs in total to Hallglen Food Pantry and Comely Park Primary School!

We have also been sent a wish list from Graeme High School to ask if we can help their children, whilst they also continue to try to raise funds for the clothing bank run in the school. We are pleased to have been able to help and have put together a box of both new and pre-loved items for which they are extremely appreciative

During the month of August, Asda very kindly put out a trolley advertising for donations of school wear, in the name of our church, and we collected items to the value of over £350. A big thank you goes to their Community Champion for the support given again this year.

May 2021: Our Labelled With Love project is continuing to help families who need a helping hand at this time and has been able to meet referrals asking for socks and shoes, underwear and casual clothing, as well as items of school uniform. We were also very grateful to have received a large amount of new sportswear donated by RJM Sports in Falkirk and this has now been distributed to schools, pantries, Camelon Social Work Department and the homeless.
