Bag2school collection 27th November 2015

                                                                                                         
Dear
Parent / Carer,
We
are pleased to announce that Playgroup has organised a textile collection with
Bag2School in order to raise funds for new toys and equipment.
Bag2School are
the UK’s leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since
its inception in 2001 they have now paid out over £20 million.
As
well as raising vitally needed funds for our playgroup, 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 1,081,000 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 in
the bag provided – this can include adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied
together please), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys. Please note bedding,
curtains, and household linen cannot be accepted (refer to www.bag2school.com
for 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 and 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!
Bag2School will be collecting from playgroup on Friday 27th November 2015.
Please bring your bag (or bags!) to playgroup and help us have a really good
collection. We can store a few bags if you prefer to bring them before that
date.
Many
thanks indeed for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
