We are pleased to announce that our Eco-Council successfully organised a textile collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds for school equipment. All parents recieved a 'Bag2School' bag and we were really please with the amount returned to school.
Bag2School are the UK's leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since its inception in 2001 they have now paid out over £16 million!
As well as raising vitally needed funds for our school, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. By getting involved in our Bag2School 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, bags, soft toys, curtains and bedding (not duvets or pillows). We will receive £400 per tonne or 50p per kilogram which will be a great boost for our PTA fundraising!
Bag2School collected the textiles from our school on the 31st January. We raised approximately £200.
Many thanks for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
St Joseph's Eco-Council.
