Sponsor A Child

Can you imagine waving your child off to school on the first day back in a uniform that doesn’t make them feel good?


Sadly, for too many families in our local community, this is a reality.


School uniform is so much more than shiny shoes and stripy ties. It gives a feeling of belonging to a community, of pride, of being just like your classmates.


When kids don’t have to worry about how they look, they are free to focus all their efforts on their learning.


At The School Bank West Lothian, we know the transformative power of school uniform. Our annual “Sponsor a Child” campaign helps to ensure that children in West Lothian experiencing financial hardship, don’t miss out on this. Last year, an incredible 389 sponsors, people just like you, provided a child with school uniform – letting them be just like all their other classmates.


When kids don’t have to worry about how they look, they are free to focus all their efforts on their learning.

Due to the coronavirus, the campaign looks a little different this year. Instead of heading to the shops, we would love if you could head to our Facebook page and click the link to donate.


A donation of £5 would provide a full PE kit, or £20 would buy shoes and a bag for a child.


Even more important than how much you can give; your donation will put a smile on their face and a spring in their step.


Please spread the word. We sincerely appreciate anything you could do to support families in your community.
