Stags to support 'School's Out For Summer' programme

20 August 2019

We will be supporting the 'School's Out for Summer' project on matchdays, established to alleviate child poverty in the local area.

The club will be gratefully accepting donations of good, used school uniform and school shoes on matchdays, with the donation point to be set up in the club's family room - which can be found underneath the Quarry Lane Stand.

'School's Out for Summer' is a community-based project which aims to tackle child poverty in the local area. 

The project are helping with the provision of free school uniforms in preparation for the new school year starting in September 2019. They are working with the Sharewear Project to provide new or nearly new uniforms.

The Stags will be helping 'School's Out for Summer' with their efforts of providing school uniforms to those less fortunate in our local area by way of the aforementioned donation point on matchdays.

The project also accept donations of non perishable food and vouchers. 

Operations director Tina Broughton (pictured above) said: "It is estimated that over 6,000 children in the Mansfield area are currently living in poverty.

"This is an unacceptable amount, and we as a club would like to help in any way we can.

"We are hugely grateful to any supporter that wishes to donate good condition school uniform that we can pass on to the School's Out For Summer project - it doesn't matter whether the uniform has been previously worn or not.

"Any supporter wishing to donate school uniform can do so in our family room on matchdays, which opens from 1.30pm on Saturdays or 6.30pm for midweek matches."
