Finton House Donates Uniform to Children’s Centre

Families at Finton House School have donated their pre-loved school uniform to a children’s day care centre in South Africa for children affected by HIV/AIDS.

After the school announced that some uniform items would be updated, many families rushed to give suggestions as to what could be done with the items no longer being worn. Miss India, Head of Marketing & Development, said “As we went about updating the uniform, we committed to repurposing the items which would no longer be worn in a number of ways. We donated good quality items to St. George’s Hospital in Tooting, and collected hundreds of worn items for fabric recycling over the course of several months. We had one talented pupil who created reams of beautiful bunting (pictured below) for use at our school events! We didn’t want any of our pre-loved branded uniform to go to waste, and so are delighted to have sent several boxes to Morning Star where we know the uniform will have a second lease of life.

The packaging and shipping costs for this initiative were paid for by the Sally Walker Fund, which underwrites all of our partnership and charitable activity. We are incredibly grateful to the generous parent donors who have committed to regular giving or have gifted a one-off donation to the Sally Walker Fund, as it enables us to form these truly meaningful relationships both locally and across the globe.”

Joan Adams, an Ambassador for Morning Star who liaised with the school, sent a letter to the entire Finton Family:
