Bag 2 School Collection

Dear Parent / Guardian

We are pleased to announce that St John’s PTA has organised, on your behalf, a clothes & shoe collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds.

We will be accepting bags for collection at drop off on the day of collection only.  Any wet bags will not be collected therefore we cannot accept any bags at school before drop off on the 26th June 2017.

Bag2School will be collecting from St John’s CofE Primary School on the morning of the 26th June 2017 promptly at 9:00am.

Please bring your bag (or bags!) to the tarpaulin area in the infant car park and help us achieve an outstanding collection.

 Bag2School is the UK’s leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since its inception in 2001 it has now paid out over £27 million.

As well as raising vitally needed funds for the children at St John’s 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, handbags and soft toys, (please refer to http://uk.bag2school.com/ for full details). In addition to raising much needed funds it will also raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.

If you fill the donation bag, but still have more, then you can use any other bag to donate your items and don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!

Many thanks indeed for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.

Yours faithfully
