We are always looking for new ways and opportunities to raise important funds for the school. We have 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 initiative also allows us to raise funds. The more clothing we collect (adult and children’s clothing, shoes, handbags, belts, hats, curtains, towels and household linen) 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 in any bag type (black sacks, bin liners, carrier bags, cardboard boxes or even pillow cases!) and bringing them into the school office on Monday 22 May 2017.
The funds we raise will be used for vital resources and equipment within the school. For more information please visit the ‘Phil the Bag’ website.
Thank you for your continued support,
Friends of Red Barn
