Bag2School – Thursday 13th July
Hopefully you’ll have seen our information about Bag2School in the recent newsletter, and in previous communications.
This is another fundraising idea that we put forward in the Friends survey to gauge interest. As over 95% of you said that you would support it, we have now gone forward and set up a collection date.
For those of you who don’t know about Bag2School, this is a fundraising scheme that gives 40p a kilo for any unwanted clothing or household linens.
Established in 1999, Bag2School works with schools, community groups, local councils and charities to help them raise funds from clothing donations and unwanted textiles. These donations are then sold to importers and wholesalers in Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia.
We’ll be sending home bags for you to fill around Friday 30th June, to be returned to school between drop off on the morning of Wednesday 12th July and 9am on Thursday 13th July.
Please note that there’s a short window for returning bags as there’s nowhere to store them in school.
This is a great way for you to clear out all those clothes the children have outgrown and unwanted textiles, whilst benefiting Ysgol y Llan at the same time, so please start sorting!
