Ladywood Community Project
Colmore Business District falls into the Ladywood Ward, one of the most deprived wards in the country. We feel we should be doing more to support this community where possible.
Colmore BID have been speaking with the Ladywood Community Project who do wonderful things for the local community including ensuring the children have school uniform.
On average it costs them £45 to provide a new uniform for each child.
The centre has already helped 19 families, 39 children, this summer but have a long list of referrals to support.
As a District we would love to be able to support the centre in clothing as many children as possible before the return to school in September.
Using the form below, you or your company can make a donation of any amount starting at £5. We will be sending weekly payments to the Ladywood Community Project allowing them to purchase uniforms. Once you have submitted the form below one of our team will be in touch to arrange payment of your specified amount.
We are also going to be collecting donations for School Bags, Lunch Boxes, vests and pants for the children. These items do need to be new but we are happy for you to drop them to the Colmore BID Office, alternatively we can come and collect from your office. We will be taking donations until Monday 5 September.
