A LOCAL firm has set up its own uniform bank to help support needy families in Inverclyde.

Logo'd is a print and embroidery business which specialises in school uniforms, work wear and team wear.

Lynne Weston, director, was inspired to set up its new charitable appeal after her son finished primary one.

She said: "Harvey completed his first year at school and I was left with a stack of clothes in really good condition.

"I didn't want to bin the clothes it as I thought somebody else could get good use out of them.

"I thought if I was in that position there would be lots of other parents who would be throwing away uniforms in good quality."

Lynne decided to post an appeal up on social media and it took off immediately.

She received 50 garments within just 48 hours.

The items will now be distributed to local families who already have the support of the foodbank.

She said: "The quality is just fabulous.

"We are working in partnership with Inverclyde Foodbank, who get referrals from the social work departments.

"People who come in to buy uniforms can drop off old clothes while collecting their new ones."

Lynne says uniforms are a big expense for families and believes the drop-off idea will help lots of people.

She said: "It can be really expensive, especially if you have more than one child going to school.

"The cost can quickly add up."
