School Uniforms

In Summer 2020 we’ve started stocking school uniforms.

I need help

New school uniforms can be expensive. If you, or someone you know is struggling right now need new school uniforms for their children, then please get in touch. We’ll do our best to help.

I want to help

If you have school uniforms, that you no longer need, and are in good condition, then please drop them off. This is a great way to have a clear out and and recycle these clothes, whilst helping your community.

An update on the Food Bank from May 2020

About the Penarth Food Bank

We set up this foodbank in 2008.

Jesus taught we should feed the hungry, and love our neighbours. As a church we’ve always given to charity and supported overseas work, but in 2008 it seemed like there might be need in our community for a foodbank – and we started this project as a way to help care for out neighbours.

Since then many other churches and organisations have joined in supporting this great work. And so many wonderful Penarth locals have donated so much food over these years.
