Newcastle Mum Provides Free School Uniforms
A Newcastle mum is on a one-woman mission to provide children in the North East with free school uniforms.
Charlene Paterson, from Walker, wanted to support parents who struggled to afford to kit their kids out for the new school-term.
The 33 year old’s idea came after she couldn’t bring herself to throw away hundreds of pounds worth of uniform, that no longer fitted her three children.
The idea sees parents donate old uniforms to drop-boxes in community centres across the north-east, where they can replace them for free with items that fit their children.
After putting out an initial plea to friends for donations of left-over blazers, trousers and jumpers, Charlene expected to get a few replies – but hundreds of struggling families have been in touch.
Drop-boxes have now been set up across Newcastle, as well as Gateshead, Sunderland and Jarrow – and she’s even had a call from London.
Charlene told Heart the idea is saving parents hundreds of pounds:
Durham County Council's agreed to a "rescue package'' to help Durham Cricket Club's financial problems

Police have now arrested five men in connection with an attack in the Arthur's Hill area on Monday.
