Local launderette Super Suds is helping struggling families by washing donated school uniforms for Coedpoeth Salvation Army.

After the success of last year’s uniform bank at the Salvation Army charity shop in Coedpoeth it is being held again this year.

The demand for the uniforms is expected to be even higher this year due to the number of people struggling to cope with the rising cost of living.

Sharon Hampton, a Salvation Army Officer at Coedpoeth church and charity said: “It's even more needed this year, as more and more families struggle with their usual costs and branded school uniforms are expensive to buy.”

“The leftover uniforms from last year have been stored in our shop but needed freshening up,” said Sharon. “The local launderette, 'Super suds', was approached to see if they could help. As this is a project helping the community out, the owner of Super Suds kindly offered to wash all the uniforms for free.”

The uniform bank will run from July 11th-2nd September. The school uniforms available are for Penygelli, Bryn tabor, and the secondary school St Josephs, Morgan Llwyd.
