Thank you, thank you, thank you. To all who attended the fair, helped set it up and put it away and those who entertained us on the day. There are so many people involved, arranging the raffle, manning stalls and, most importantly, spending money. I hope you all had a great afternoon.  We raised over £2, 500 which will contribute towards the final payment we have to make on the adventure playground.

Bag 2 School Now 'til Tuesday 25th June 

Please note the change of date which was decided upon to reflect the wet weather.  We do not get paid for wet items so want to keep items as dry as possible.  This was a popular event last term and we collected 450kg of clothes and shoes.  The previous collection had been 900kg and I am hoping we can all have a clear out and see if we can smash these amounts.  We are paid 40p per kg so this is a great money making scheme for the PTA and a good reason for a clear out.  Bags will be coming home with the children and there will be more in the office or you can use your own.

Here is what we are after, have a clear out, we will take it off your hands.

Good quality items for RE-USE:

  • Men’s, Ladies’ and Children’s clothing
  • Paired shoes (tied together or elastic band around)
  • Handbags
  • Hats
  • Bags
  • Scarves and ties
  • Jewellery
  • Lingerie
  • Socks
  • Belts
  • Soft toys
  • Household linen
  • Household curtains
  • Household towels
  • Household bedding (bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers)

NOT accepted:

  • Duvets and blankets
  • Pillows and cushions
  • Carpets, rugs and mats (including bath, shower and toilet mats)
  • Soiled, painted, ripped or wet clothing
  • School uniforms with and without logo
  • Corporate clothing and workwear
  • Textile off cuts, yarns or threaded material

All the best, 

Janine Harling
