Happy School Bags

We will be collecting Happy Bags in the September term - date to be confirmed - please keep collecting old clothes till then.

This scheme is designed to help schools to raise funds and to help the environment by diverting discarded but reusable textiles away from landfill. In the UK alone we consume and discard over 1.4 million tonnes of textiles a year which goes directly into landfill despite the fact that there is spare capacity in textile recycling plants. By taking part in this scheme you help to reduce this amount by giving textiles a new lease of life.

To take part you simply need to fill the Happy School bag which has been placed in your child's drawer with unwanted but clean clothing. We accept both children’s and adult clothes including paired shoes, accessories (hats, belts, handbags, etc…), soft toys and bed linen.

Remember that the more you fill up the bag the more the Woodlands can raise; we receive a competitive rate of up to 65p per kilo; you can also use additional black bin bags if required.

This is a fantastic opportunity to raise eco-friendly awareness amongst children. Everyone can take part so spread the word and let’s get fundraising!
