We are pleased to announce that the school has organised a textile collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds for the school council’s charity this year which is Children with Diabetes.
As well as raising vitally needed funds for our school, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 1,081,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
By getting involved in our collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted textiles in the bag provided – this can include adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys. Please note bedding, curtains, and household linen cannot be accepted (refer to www.bag2school.com
for details). In addition to raising much needed funds it will also raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.
