Cornwall Childrens Clothes Bank

Areas in Cornwall have officially some of the highest rates of child poverty in Europe. Our primary aim is to bring communities together to help struggling local families, with the gift of much needed children’s clothes. We will not be operating along traditional charity business models or that of the foodbanks. No money will ever change hands. We aim to operate on goodwill alone. It is time to take back our communities and restore our faith in one another.

Our ethos is simple: it is one of kindness.

  • We are not a charity, but a goodwill organisation.
  • We are a non-political group with no political allegiances.
  • We take the gift of pre-loved children’s clothes and redistribute them to anyone who feels they need our help.
  • We are open to all and do not operate a referral or voucher system. We realise that in tough times, working families also need a hand.
  • We cater for boys and girls from birth to sixteen. As well as everyday clothes, we also carry school uniforms, coats and shoes.
  • What we do as a team, is about more than simply supplying much needed items. It is about building a better society and enabling communities to come together.
  • Kindness is the one thing we can all give!

Unfortunately, all our donation points are currently closed and we are not able to receive any donations of clothes, toys and household items for the time being.
