Thank you to everyone that has helped collect supermarket vouchers from Sainsburys, Tesco and Morrisons. Thanks to you, we have recently received a docking station, a gym mat, squistles and a giant chess set from Sainsburys.
Please keep collecting supermarket vouchers from these stores.
Over the last year the Rag Bag collection has raised £106 for school resources.
Through Rag Bag you are helping recycle textiles and clothing that may have ended up going to landfill. It is estimated that approximately 1.75 million tonnes of clothing waste is produced in the UK every year. Out of this vast tonnage around 1.2 million tonnes is sent unnecessarily to landfill.
If we can divert some of this tonnage away from landfill we will directly help the environment and help provide good quality clothing to some of the poorest developing nations in the world.
Items that are accepted for the Rag Bag collection are:
- 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…
The following items aren’t accepted
- Duvets both synthetic and feathered
- Soiled or wet clothing
Mobile Phones/ Ink Cartridges
The school collects old mobile phones and used ink cartridges for recycling.
