 New stretch target




Oh my goodness we are blown away! 

Thanks to your support we have smashed our £10,000 target in just 3 hours... then you have burst through £25,000 in just 25 hours!
We cannot believe how generous you have been.

Your support has been so amazing that we have decided to keep going and dream big with a new stretch target of £50,000.

The more money we raise the more schools we can support. For every £800 raised we can set up another mini-launderette for a school in need.

So if you can, please do keep supporting us and sharing this link with your friends and family.

Not a penny will be wasted, we can do so much with your support.

Thank you.

Many school children in the UK are seriously suffering as a result of not having clean clothes to wear.

According to a report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, children currently face the highest poverty rate in the UK in the last 20 years. The problem is now impacting millions of families up and down the nation and many children are regularly missing school for lack of a clean uniform. 

8 in 10 primary school teachers say they have witnessed a rise in the number of children attending school unwashed or wearing unclean uniform in the last 5 years and have found themselves intervening at an increasing rate (one third of teachers regularly buy their pupils toiletry essentials).



To create mini-launderettes in schools which need them. Providing a washing machine/dryer and all the detergent they need to ensure no child in their care has to suffer from the consequences of not having clean clothes/uniforms.



We recently set up our very first washing machine in a primary school in Blackpool, and it's already having a big impact. 




Each school will be set up with a brand new washing machine/dryer (fully installed) and all the detergent they need to ensure children's clothing can be regularly laundered completely free of charge. 

We need your help to raise funds so that we can start creating multiple
mini-launderettes in schools across the country during 2022.



There are two ways you can help:

1. Pledge your support, for every £800 raised we can set up the suds in school project in a school.

Donations of any size are gratefully received, and we've added some smol treats as a way of saying a big thank you.

smol will be supplying free capsules to accompany all machines. Your donation goes straight into buying and installing washing machines/dryers in schools.
