Bag2School Collection: Revised Date

Due to the school closure, the Bag2School collection will now take place on Friday 9th March.  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 9th March.

Please bring your bag (or bags!) of clothes and shoes 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 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.
