Dear Parents and Carers,
We are pleased to announce that Nutfield Church School PTFA have organised a clothes & shoe collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds.
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 £36 million.
As well as raising vitally needed funds for Nutfield Church School PTFA, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However, it is a fact that as a nation we still send 350,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted textiles – 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. Please use your own bags to donate your items, as Bag 2 School are trying to reduce unnecessary extra plastic.
Don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well! Bag2School will be collecting from Nutfield Church Primary School on Thursday 3rd February. Please bring your bag (or bags!) to the drop off point (school drive, on the right hand side verge, near the railings) by 9am and help us have a really good collection. Many thanks indeed for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
