Level Trust is a local, Luton-based charity which exists to remove the barriers that poverty brings to a child’s education. Spicer & Co provides financial and accounting advice voluntarily to Level Trust. Suzanne Spicer is a trustee of the charity and is pleased to be actively involved with supporting the work undertaken by the organisation.
Last week, Level Trust was proud to open its new Uniform Exchange in The Mall, Luton. “Our pop-up Uniform Exchanges have always been extremely popular, so Level Trust felt that there would be a demand for a long-term space to offer this incredibly helpful service to the local community,” says Suzanne.
She explains: “We had been looking into potential space for our Uniform Exchange when The Mall’s team reached out to Level Trust to see how they could help us.”
The result? A newly decorated and fitted retail space on the first floor of The Mall in Luton. This is made possible by the wonderful volunteers who gave their time and skills to transform the unit and ensure that it’s now… officially… open!
Using Level Trust’s Uniform Exchange
Good news – anyone can use the Exchange! Simply bring along the uniform items you no longer use and swap them for those that you need.
Nothing to swap? Don’t worry – simply talk to your school and they can give you a gift card to swap instead of uniform items.
It’s easy to find! The Uniform Exchange is next to the Children’s Centre on the first floor of The Mall in Luton. The opening hours are
- – Tuesdays 12pm – 4pm
- – Wednesdays 9am – 1pm
- – Thursdays 12pm – 4pm
- – Fridays 9am – 1pm
- – Saturdays 10am – 2pm
By the way…
Level Trust is trying hard to become London Luton Airport’s next charity partner, (2018 – 2019). Whilst all the five nominees represent worthy causes, Level Trust is the only truly local charity involved.
If Level Trust became London Luton Airport’s charity partner, they would aim to provide 5,000 free school uniform items, 1,500 pairs of free school shoes, 1,000 free winter coats and 1,500 free learning resource packs to children in Luton who need them most.
