Helping each other and helping the planet in The Scottish Borders.
Our vision is for a Scottish Borders where no child or young person can not participate fully in daily life and activities due to a lack of available clothing.
Cheviot Togs endeavours to reduce the amount of good quality clothes going to landfill while in turn providing children and young people with decent clothing to fully participate in life.
We will collect, sort, launder and redistribute good quality children’s clothing to those who need. We’d like to recruit a team of volunteers to help with the laundry, and we’d like to find premises which we can use as a base for storage, sorting and wrapping clothes bundles.
Based in the south of The Borders we will work with Berwickshire Swap and Tweed Togs to ensure that we’ve covered our entire area. Making it easy to donate clothing and easier to redistribute.
Cheviot Togs would like to eventually provide sports, party clothing, uniforms and formal clothing working with local partners to make sure all our young people can participate in life to their full potential without worrying about suitable clothes.
Working with professionals and young people themselves we will try our best to make life a wee bit better.
We will also be looking for corporate donations of new underwear, suitcases for children in care and footwear.
We will NEVER send out clothing that we would not be happy with our own children wearing.
