A consignment of new and secondhand uniform from Melbourn Village College is set for a new life in Bosnia.
The college adopted a new uniform of navy jumper, white shirt and navy and gold tie in September and the previous royal blue sweatshirt and white polo shirts is now being phased out.
But staff and students were keen to see it put to good use and the entire stock of brand new sweatshirts and polo shirts as well as all the contents of the secondhand uniform shop is being passed on to a school in the Eastern European country which was devastated by war in the 1990s.
Around five boxes of uniform is expected to head abroad with the help of local suppliers, Schoolyard, of Jarman Way, Royston, which is helping co-ordinate the export effort.
Principal Simon Holmes said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we have been able to put this uniform to good use.
