12 Nov PTA Bag 2 School Collection
The PTA has arranged for a Bag2School collection on Tuesday 30th November.
How does it work?
Bag2School are a fundraising scheme which collects and sells your unwanted textiles to importers and wholesalers overseas to benefit the Circular Economy. They pay the school 30p for each kilo of clothes donated, so a bin liner full of clothes is worth approximately £1.50.
How can I get involved?
Start by having a pre-Christmas clear out! Bring any clothes/textiles you no longer need to the school office in bin liner-sized bags.
Drop your bag (or bags) no later than Tuesday 30th November by 9am.
Donations will be accepted at the school office from Wednesday 24th November.
There is no limit to the number of bags you can donate – the more we collect the more money we will raise for the Summer School Trips Appeal.
What items does Bag2School accept?
The following good quality items can be donated for re-use:
· Men’s, Ladies’ and Children’s clothing
· Paired shoes (tied together or elastic band around)
· Scarves and ties
· Soft toys
· Household linen
· Household curtains
· Household towels
· Household bedding (bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers)
Please check the Bag2School website carefully for a list of items that CANNOT be accepted: https://bag2school.com/what-we-collect
