Help us recycle and raise funds for
Cash for Clobber Collection
Wednesday 8th September
This year we are again taking part in the Cash for Clobber Competition as we continue our work on the Eco-Schools Program. The Cash for Clobber scheme is aimed at raising awareness of textile recycling among children and to show how essential it is for everyone in the ‘developed world’ to reduce, reuse and recycle and is also a great way of raising funds for our school. Schools which collect the most textiles per pupil are in with a chance to win the annual ‘Cash for Clobber’ competition with fantastic prizes of up to £1,000 for schools who collect the most clobber.
Our next collection is on Wednesday 8th September. Arrangements are a little different this year and we would ask that bags of clean, unwanted textiles are brought to school on Wednesday at drop off time and passed ‘over the wall’ to staff for storage in our Car Park until collection time. Please observe social distancing guidelines.
Cookstown Textile Recyclers, one of the Eco-school program partners, who will sort and recycle. Low grade material is used for industrial wipers and fillings, good quality clothes are re-used in the developing world.
Why not have a autumn clear out of old and unwanted items? Please encourage family and friends to donate their unwanted textiles too.
What can you put in the bag??
Many thanks for your continued support.
