Wednesfield North Councillors Proudly Announce!

£800 -Awarded to The Uniform Exchange Project.

Wednesfield North Councillors Mary Bateman Rita Potter and Phil Bateman, announced today, that for a second year. We will be financially supporting from the Wednesfield North Ward Funds ‘The Uniform Exchange’ where people make available to other parents, school uniform that still has a lot of life in it, for Local Wednesfield North Schools.

Sarah Rutter – has been running this uniform bank for over 10 years encouraging recycling of reusable garments, to the most vulnerable within our community. She has also been involved in numerous other projects.

Your Councillors have spoken about Sarah Lou Rutter on previous occasions.

We believe that Sarah is a ‘special lady’ giving up so much of her time and energy not just to this project, but for other community projects right across our patch. Last year (2021) your three Councillors awarded Sarah a ‘Wednesfield North Community Excellence Award’ as we felt the Uniform Exchange Project was one of the standout volunteers projects of the Year.

In 2021 we also made an Award of £687 to the uniform bank.

This year 2022 we have made a new Ward Funds contribution of £800, which will have been deposited in The Uniform Exchange Project Bank accounts now. Sarah informs us that the Uniform Exchange Project is under even more pressure from families, as the economic situation and the cost of living issues, creep ever higher and higher.
