The Riverbank Eco Group have registered with Bag 2 School, an organisation that helps to recycle good quality clothing, shoes and textiles. All children will take home a bag and we would be grateful if you could fill it with ‘good quality’ items for re-use.
The bags have a list of acceptable items:
We accept the following ‘good quality’ items for RE-USE:
- Men’s, Ladies’ and Children’s clothing
- Paired shoes (tied together or elastic band around)
- Scarves and ties
- Soft toys
- Household linen
- Bedding (bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers)
Please do not send in underwear, ripped or soiled clothing, duvets and blankets, or school or work uniforms.
The group are keen that the money is used to support our twinned school in Uganda following this collection. If successful, future collections can be arranged to benefit the school.
Our collection will take place on Tuesday 5th December at 9 am. Please do not send your bags in before this date as we will be unable to store them!
