Phil the Bag 2015

Added on by Andy Howe.

‘Phil’ the Bag ™ is back!

Two years we signed up to an innovative fundraising programme called ‘Phil the Bag’, which recycles your old and unwanted clothing and turns it into cash for the school.

‘Phil the Bag’ not only develops the children’s sense of enterprise but also teaches them about the importance of recycling and how we can protect the environment.

Did you know that textiles make up 12% of landfill sites?

This fundraising initiative also allows us to raise funds – the more clothing we collect – adult and children’s clothing, shoes, handbags, belts, hats, curtains, towels and bedding - the more money we will receive in exchange for these products.

You can support our ‘Phil the Bag’ fundraising programme by donating your unwanted textiles and bringing them into school on our ‘Phil the Bag’ Recycle Day, Tuesday 10th November 2015. We will provide the official bags closer to the time but items can be donated in any tied bin bag. The collection area for the bags will be the glazed link.

So if you normally throw out your unwanted clothes, or have bits and pieces gathering dust in the wardrobe, please sort them out and use them to ‘Phil the Bag’! Don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a good clear out too! (Items are accepted in any condition, as those items that cannot be reused are recycled).

Last time we raised £195 which was used for various resources across the school. Any future funds that we raise can be used for further resources and equipment.

We look forward to receiving your support for this fantastic fundraising initiative.

Yours sincerely

Ms Fallon
