Other Ways to Donate
We realise that not everyone is able to be a PTA Committee Member or to help out at events, but here are some other easy ways that you can help to raise funds for our school. Thank You.
The 'Rag Bag' recycling scheme helps divert textiles and clothing that may have ended up going to landfill. It is estimated that approximately 1.2 million tonnes of clothing waste is sent to landfill in the UK every year.
By recycling some of this we will directly help the environment and help provide good quality clothing to some of the poorest developing nations in the world.
The scheme is completely FREE, and our school will be paid for every kg recycled. Our textile bank is located in the School car-park.
They can accept the following items:
- All men's, ladies and children's clothing
- Paired shoes (tied together)
- Handbags, bags, ties & belts
- Soft Toys
- Underwear to include socks, tights, pants and bras etc...
- Household textiles to include towels, bed linen, curtains etc...
They cannot accept the following items:
- Duvets both synthetic and feathered
- Soiled, wet or damaged clothing
