School Uniform Hub Returns  

We’re pleased to announce the return of our school uniform appeal to support local families, in partnership with Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance (DF4TA).    

The initiative, which is organised by DF4TA and supported by Derbion, aims to support the region’s children by providing much-needed school uniform items, ahead of the new academic year.  

Until 25 August, families can drop off unwanted school uniform in the large donation box situated outside Sainsbury’s on Level 1 at Derbion. Families are welcome to contribute both branded and unbranded items, including blazers, jumpers, cardigans, shirts, polos, trousers, skirts, PE shorts, plain tracksuits and more. All donations, whether new or used, should be clean and in good condition. 

In addition, from Monday 26 – Friday 30 August, between 10am and 4pm, families can visit the School Uniform Hub at Derbion to donate or pick up pre-loved school uniform. The pop-up hub, located on Level 1 outside Iceland, will include items for both primary and secondary children, offering a more sustainable and affordable alternative for school uniforms. 

The School Uniform Hub will ensure that all donated items go to families who need them most, supporting the local community as they prepare for the new school year. As part of its ‘Derbion Cares’ initiative, this year marks Derbion’s second year supporting DF4TA with its school uniform appeal.
