Rag-Bag Clothing Re-cycling


Just a brief reminder that we are a registered re-cycling point for Rag Bag Clothing Re-Cycling. The scheme increases awareness about textile recycling and by increasing recycling rates we can help the environment by ensuring less material goes to landfill. The bank is located in the Junior locker room and all donations must be bagged. Our PTA receives a payment by weight for every kilo collected (£400 per tonne!), which is then shipped to Africa to be donated to those in need.

With the change in Seasons, now is a great time to sort out your wardrobe and clear out those items you now longer wear. If you would like to donate any items of clothing, collection bags will come home with your child this week and donations can be placed in the clothing bank or dropped off at the school office. Extra bags are available from the school office if required. Thank you for your support. We even have a Rag Baggers junior textile recyclers sticker for every pupil donating!
