MIIXER cic have reopened their retail outlet on a permanent basis on Musselburgh High Street (used to be Store 21). This is a third sector initiative that works in partnership with Waste Services. On the last Sunday of each month kids clothes will be free.
Each family can take up to 2 kg of children’s clothes (including shoes) which must be checked out at the counter so that they can record weights. MIIXER cic will be trialling this initiative for the first three months to ascertain demand. If they cannot supply to meet demand from current donations they may have to work towards a referral system/expansion of the donation bank network or a combination of both.
This is a fantastic opportunity to tackle deprivation. School uniforms and wellies are free every day and anyone requiring a suit for interview will also be assisted in the same way.
