Infinity Initiatives C.I.C.

We have seen the Facebook post from Infinity Initiatives C.I.C. and the messages of support from a number of kind people that have offered to help one of our children.

We have a stock of good quality 'new-to-you' uniform items and our families are really good at donating items that their children have outgrown - we try our best to help our children so they have access to appropriate uniform. 

Our office staff are very helpful and will make sure any donations get to the child mentioned in the post. 

Thank you for your kindness and the support you have offered. 

Sally Brown, Head of School, Mather Street Primary School.
