Pre-Loved Falmouth School Uniform
At Castle Sports we’re conscious of how quickly children grow out of their uniform and understand that it can be costly for parents to replace items on a regular basis. We are therefore working in partnership with local mental health charity Georgia’s Voice, to recycle Falmouth School uniform and make it available to parents who may be on a limited income.
There are huge social and environmental benefits of recycling school uniform. The uniform that we sell is excellent quality and there is usually plenty of life left in it once it has been outgrown, so it makes sense to recycle it. It also helps to reduce the amount of waste unnecessarily going to landfill and will raise vital funds for a local charity that actively supports young people in our local community.
Georgia’s Voice Pre-Loved Boutique in Killigrew Street (opposite Tesco) has set up a rail for second-hand uniform in their shop and they welcome donations of uniform that is in a clean, re-saleable condition. Sophie Alway, who founded Georgia’s Voice in memory of her daughter Georgia Gallaway who sadly took her own life following a battle with her mental health, was keen to join forces with Castle Sports to promote the sale of second-hand uniform in their shop. At the launch of the scheme she said “The success of the initiative will rely on parents donating their out-grown uniform to our shop in Killigrew Street so that it can be made available for sale to those who need it. All the money raised from the sale of uniform will be put towards providing support for young people who are experiencing problems with their mental health.”
Castle Sports has also nominated Georgia’s Voice as its Charity of the Year and will be raising funds for them throughout the year, as well as donating all the proceeds generated in store from the government carrier bag charge.
Donations of second-hand Falmouth School uniform can be dropped off at either Castle Sports or Georgia’s Voice Pre-Loved Boutique, both of which are at the bottom of Killigrew Street.
