Stags to support ‘School’s Out For Summer’ project

Starting with tonight’s (Tuesday’s) league match against Leyton Orient, Mansfield Town will be supporting the ‘School’s Out for Summer’ project on matchdays.

The community-based project has been established to fight child poverty in the local area.

The club will be 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.

The project is helping with the provision of free school uniforms in preparation for the new school year. The Stags 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 donation point on matchdays.

The project also accepts donations of non-perishable food and vouchers.

Operations director Tina Broughton 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.”
