For further information, please email Dee on: or phone 02476 633500 (and select option 5), or mobile 07544 231155.

Coventry Clothes Bank was started by an initiative by the Tollgate pub in January 2013 during the particularly cold winter of 2013. Clothes parcels (including some school uniforms) are distributed to recipients through foodbank centres across the city,

Many schools have enjoyed raising much needed funds for Clothes Bank through our Pop-Up Shops and Fashion Parades. Please contact Dee is you are interested in running an event.
