School uniforms - new and recycled

In partnership with Swansea Council, we have set up a new project ABC123 which is all about affordable school uniforms. We accept donated uniforms that are no longer required, launder them and then re-sell them at a fraction of the cost of new uniforms.

We currently have a large quantity of uniforms available at our premises in the town centre: Unit 12, St. David's Shopping Centre, Swansea and we would welcome you to come and see what is available. Please contact us on 07494 966980 to arrange a suitable time to visit. 

Our stock includes jumpers, sweatshirts, cardigans, trousers, dresses (summer and winter) and polo shirts.  Some of the uniforms are branded and some are not. Prices range from £2.00 to £5.00 per item and we also have some bundles available as well.
