A GROUP of young people are working hard to set up a school uniform swap shop for pupils in the Garnock Valley.

And now they have teamed up with Youth Workers Dionne Griffiths and Josh Wilson to transform part of their Kilbirnie Main Street base into the uniform swap shop.

Amy Mason, 17, and Jill Stirling, 16, are helping create the shop.

Youth worker Dionne Griffiths said: “Kilbirnie has high levels of deprivation and has been struck by the pandemic, leaving many families struggling.

“We are hoping a resource like this will act as a lifeline for them.”
