After hearing about the campaign, here's what people have said about my project:
David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools:
'I am very interested in the scheme you have in place for keeping the costs of school uniform low. I would encourage you to promote the Rewear Schoolwear project to schools and parents in your local area. Thank you for writing to me on this important issue. I wish you every success with the Rewear Schoolwear Project.'
Dave Linton, Youth Worker and Former Pupil of Monkstown Community School:
'There is no better time for a project like this where young people can get expensive school uniform that is in good condition even when they can't afford it. Every young person deserves this opportunity.'
James McAuley, Former Pupil of Monkstown Community School:
'I think Rewear Schoolwear is a great idea, particularly now as money is tight for many people. As a former pupil of Monkstown Community School myself, I just wish it had been about when I was at the school. I definitely would have handed stuff in and made use of it myself to get bits and pieces of uniform.'
Carol Hamilton, Caretaker, Monkstown Community School:
'Rewear Schoolwear is a great idea. It helps cut the cost of school uniforms at a time when money is tight. It also teaches the young people involved things like social responsibility. For everyone involved it's a great way of building the community.'
'Rewear Schoolwear is a brilliant idea. Hopefully it takes off in Monkstown and more schools might do it too.'
'This is another brilliant resource from Fixers, just like the Road Safety pledge. I hope it'll help get Rewear Schoolwear established.
Myself and my fellow Fixers were delighted to attend the Fixers Northern Ireland Launch in Stormont where we met a variety of other Fixers and Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs)
