You asked! We did! Back by popular demand we will be hosting a second School Uniform pop-up shop here at Castle Quay on Saturday 26th August.


At a time when many families are concerned with increasing costs, we are hosting this swap shop to support our local community. Any items that are donated and not picked up for reuse from the swap shop, will be donated to the Banbury Uniform Exchange.

In addition to this, we kindly ask all those who can to donate to our charity partner The Sunshine Centre, you can do this on the day or online via the link below. Big or small it all helps and is greatly appreciated.

If you are able, please donate your clothes to the Customer Service Desk from today ahead of the event, washed and in wearable condition.

The Details:


Clothes Donations = Customer Service Desk near Lock29

Pop-up Shop = Castle Quay – unit opposite Clintons



School uniform items accepted for donation from now (9th June) until Friday 25th August.

School Swap Shop will be held on Saturday 26th August. 11am – 3pm. (Or until we run out of school clothes)

In addition, we are also hosting several local sports clubs to help raise awareness of activities and organisations in and around Banbury. This is located close by near to JD Sports.


Supporting Partners:

The Sunshine Centre

The Sunshine Centre was created to act as a hub for a range of family and childcare support services for the community in Bretch Hill and the surrounding area. This includes Early Years and the Childrens’ Centre.

We are home to an Ofsted outstanding nursery which provides childcare for children from 3 months to 5 years, organise classes and courses for families in the community, and host a range of baby and toddler groups. We also partner with other organisation such as the NHS to provide weekly antenatal clinics.
