Phil the Bag Collection – Tue’ 20th November

Please click on the title to read this post in full to collection times and further details. Following the success of our previous ‘Phil the Bag’ collections; the Friends would like to ask you all to please spare a few minutes to bag up any unwanted clothes, coats, bedding, towels, curtains, handbags, hats, belts and all other textiles you can find.

(They don’t have to be in fantastic condition they can recycle as well as reuse!)

Have a good clear out before Christmas!

Most importantly please don’t forget your shoes, more shoes and your

HEAVIEST SHOES! 

(We make 40p per kilo and now have a minimum collection of 40 bags to fulfil, no amount is too small.)

What to do

  • Items can be donated in any old bag, bin bag, plastic bag, rucksack, handbag, how about a pillow case?!
  • ‘Phil the bag’ no longer supplies bags due to the new Government restrictions and charges on plastic bags as from October 5th 2015.
  • Please bring after school to reception on Monday 19th November or by 9am on the morning of Tuesday 2oth November.

Don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours, remind your class mums and dads and help make this our biggest collection yet!

 

Did you know that textiles make up 12% of landfill sites?  This fundraising initiative also allows us to raise funds – the more clothing we collect – adult and children’s clothing, shoes, handbags, belts, hats, curtains, towels and household linen – the more money we will receive in exchange for these products. The funds we raise can be used for vital resources and equipment within the school.

We look forward to receiving your support for this fantastic fundraising initiative.
