The mounting cost of getting kids back to school

From Nine To Noon, 9:20 am on 25 January 2017

A Palmerston North charity says it is distributing hundreds of second hand uniforms, as families struggle with the cost, as well as school fees, sports kit and school camp costs. Palmy Revolution was founded in 2014 by Jenny Hall and Siobhan de Lacy-Hollows, who set out to help families in need by reallocating donated goods. Jenny Hall says families can be faced with costs of more than a thousand dollars per child, and many simply cannot afford it.
