Bags 2 School

November 7, 2018 Sarah Dunn

The next ‘Bag 2 School’ event will be held on Friday 16th November at Compton All Saints’ Primary School.  Any donations of clothing, towels, curtains, bed-sheets, shoes, cuddly toys, handbags and jewellery (no duvets, coat hangers, books, pilllows or cushions, bathmats, industrial garments or wet/damp clothing please) can be left outside the main school gate at 8 am on the day or stored in Compton church ahead of the event. Collection sacks are available in the entrance to Compton Church, but items can be put in any type of watertight bag and labelled ‘Bag 2 School’.

This charitable scheme works with schools to raise money from textile donations, which get sold to countries mainly in Eastern Europe and Africa for recycling.
