Rags2Ritches Recycling Scheme

1st March 2020

We have signed up to the rags2riches4schools recycling scheme, to raise money and help others around the world benefit from our good quality unwanted clothes and shoes. We get 50p for every kilo we collect of reusable items towards buying new books for each class and would be most grateful if you could help us with this challenge at home.

 

We have a collection booked for 30th April 2020.

 

A rags2riches4schools bag will be given to every child for you to recycle as a family just before our collection days. Additional bags may also be used if needed.

 

Clean and reusable items that can be donated:

Good quality clothes and accessories.

Adults, children’s and babies clothing such as Jackets, Jumpers, hoodies, trousers, skirts, scarves, gloves, belts, handbags, paired shoes and other footwear etc.

 

They cannot reuse the following items:

Worn out shoes or clothes, clothes that are wet or have holes in.

Curtains, pillows or duvets, bric-a-brac or books. Personalised items.

Work uniform, School uniform or school sports kit

 

Donated clothes and accessories are sent to Europe, Africa and even further away to be sold at market stalls as affordable items for those in real need of clothing.

Zahki and Shannon rang the Rags2Riches company/ charity and were amazing at organising the scheme
