TWO hundred new children’s cardigans are up for grabs for free in Wirral.
The navy blue cardigans are brand new, plain and without any badges.
They are for children aged seven to eight.
The cardigans were donated by a local company because the pockets are not aligned correctly and they can’t be used.
They were given to a group called Wirral Free Uniforms for Schools (FUSS) who recycle school clothes and hand them out.
Now organisers Sheila Fowler and daughter Kate want the cardigans to go to good homes.
Sheila, from Hoylake, said: “The manufacturers donated 200 cardigans as they said the pocket are slightly wonky and can’t use them.
“But I can’t notice anything wrong with them – the cardigans look perfectly fine to me.
“We’re very grateful to the company as it means this will save parents the costly expense of having to buy one.
“They are made from a fleece material and plain – they don’t have any badges on them.
“They are ideal not only for school, but also for sport activities and outside of school.
“We are currently researching to see if there are any primary schools in Wirral who wear a blue uniform.
“So I do appeal for parents to contact me and get a cardigan for free.”
