For many young families, the rising cost of living means they have to decide between buying new school uniforms for their children or putting food on the table.
St Luke’s Methodist Church is part of a group of churches that have come together to create Free Uniform for Secondary Schools (FUSS), a project that supplies supply school clothing for families living on The Wirral Peninsula.
Families can come along to a FUSS community hub or the group’s shop in Birkenhead, where they can pick out the items they need. Parents of secondary school children can also request clothes online via the FUSS website.
The initiative has already inspired a number of similar projects across the North and North East of the UK, and it has brought churches together across The Wirral too.
