The Uniform Exchange is run by Luton charity Level Trust, which works to give every child a level chance at school.
At the opening ceremony, local boxer Jordan Reynolds did the honours by cutting the ribbon. He was joined by children and staff from The Meads and Beechwood Primary Schools, parents, Cllr Hussain Mahmood and Level Trust supporters the Connolly Foundation and Machins Solicitors.
Husna Rasul from Level Trust said: “Anyone can use the Exchange to swap school uniform for free. Not only is it a great way to save money, it’s also good for the environment – giving a new lease of life to good quality uniform stops it ending up in landfill.”
Although the Uniform Exchange has been open since August, this week the official opening was celebrated to coincide with Level Trust’s fifth birthday.
It’s been a busy few years for the charity, who have already provided free school uniform to 1,450 children through their Uniform Exchange project – and this is just the beginning.
