 New stretch target

Our latest stretch target of £3000 will allow us to provide brand new underwear, socks and pyjamas to local families as well as enabling us to respond to any specific clothing requests.


Who are we? 

We are a children’s clothing bank (Registered Charity Number SC050347) based in Dunfermline. 

Set up three years ago as a response to the financial impact of Covid 19, we sadly find that, in 2023, our services are now needed more than ever as the cost-of-living crisis hits families hard.

This year (Aug 22 to July 23), we have had an 81% increase in requests for clothing parcels in comparison with the previous year.  That’s 740 children from 370 families who received a pack from us in the past 12 months.  Almost all requests are for a week’s worth of clothing, often including footwear and school uniform.  In total, we have helped 1500 children so far.

In addition to donations of top-quality clothing from the local community, at CCBD we rely on cash donations to allow us to supplement our pre-loved clothes with brand new underwear and pyjamas for each and every clothes parcel we produce.  

We also have a system where we can provide children who need new shoes with a voucher which will allow the family the dignity of taking their child to pick the shoes they like and most importantly ensure they fit properly.  We also provide a similar voucher system for older teenage children to supplement a smaller clothing parcel.  

Finally, financial donations received can allow us to purchase specific clothing requests to enable children to take part in afterschool activities along with their peers.

How will your donation be spent? 

£7 buys a pack of underwear

£10 buys new winter pyjamas

£20 buys a shoe voucher

£50 provides two warm jackets for the walk to school in winter
