Rags2Riches4Schools Recycling Scheme

Dear Parents/Carers,


Rags2Riches4Schools Recycling Scheme


All our infant children should have received a pack today to donate your unwanted clothes to our appeal! Junior children will receive theirs tomorrow. Just a reminder that the donations are to be brought into school on Friday 19th May or Monday 22nd May 2023.


No donations will be taken until these dates. We are hoping that your generosity in donating your unwanted clothes will help those in need and help towards some new equipment for our Play Café.

Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Napier/Ms Glover

Family Support Team



We have signed up to the Rags2Riches4Schools Recycling Scheme, to help others around the world benefit from our good quality unwanted clothes and shoes.  We get 40p for every kilo we collect of reusable items that will go towards new equipment for our Play Café and would be most grateful if you could help us with this challenge at home.


        Bag(s) can be brought into school by:

                            Friday 19th May or Monday 22nd May 2023

                            Please bring to the main Meadow Reception

                            Mark the black bag(s) with ‘R4R’


Please help us to help others and raise much needed funds for our school.  Thank you for your continuing support.


Yours sincerely,




Mrs L Napier

Family Support Worker






Do you have clothes in your wardrobe that you no longer wear, maybe last year’s fashions, or that buy that was too good to leave but it’s not really you after all?


Please help us fundraise by donating your good quality unwanted, re-useable (clean, dry and wearable) clothes and accessories.

(please pair and tie shoes together)


Your donations become affordable clothing in other countries.

So please DO NOT send poor quality, dirty or wet items, and no duvets, pillows, curtains, books, CDs or bric-a-brac.


STOP and THINK - is it something you’d wear out and about yourself or pass to a friend? If not, no one else will want to buy and wear it either, so unfortunately it’s not reusable and can’t go in the bag.


Even if it’s only one t-shirt please bring it in, as it will all help our school.

If you can involve family, friends and neighbours please do.


We truly appreciate your support in helping raise additional funds for our school for the benefit of our children.

There’s no better feeling than knowing you raised funds, helped the economy, the environment, and somebody on the other side of the world – and all by donating some clothes.

If we can fill 100 black bags, we’ll have half a tonne!


Please bring your donations to school:


FRIDAY 19th MAY 2023 or MONDAY 22nd MAY 2023 Main Meadow Reception area in a Black Bag


(Please mark bag(s) with ‘R4R’)
