Our Vision

The Button Box is a community children’s clothing project based in Midlothian, Scotland. Founded in 2016, we work in partnership with local residents and businesses to offer a variety of opportunities for families to come together for a 'cuppa' and a chat, to donate and collect FREE clothing.

The Button Box looks to support families in the Midlothian area by collecting donations of children’s clothing all year round whilst holding events throughout the year giving families the chance to access free clothing to support their growing families.

We believe building strong local communities is about understanding, appreciating, and caring for the people that live within them.

Our events are open to everyone, regardless of their circumstances. All local families are welcome and can access our events, which take place throughout the year at different times and locations across Midlothian.

The Button Box was founded by Diane Janczyk and Clair Mclaren.
