A message from the Friends of Christ College
We are pleased to announce that after the success of the last collection where we raised £200.00, the Friends have organised a further clothes and shoe collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds for ongoing projects at the school. Bags will be coming home with the children at half-term in readiness for their return after the half term holiday.
As well as raising funds for Christ College, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 350,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted textiles in the bag provided – this can include adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys, (please refer to
http://uk.bag2school.com/ for full details).
If you fill the donation bag and still have more, then you can use ANY other bag to donate your items and don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!
Bag2School will be collecting from reception on the 4th March (the Monday after the half term holiday). Please bring your bag (or bags!) to reception on the morning of the 4th March by 9am, or if your children are boarders please send the bags back with them on Sunday 3rd March.
A reminder that the battery competition that the school is taking part in will close at the end of March. We aim to collect as many batteries as possible for collection the week commencing 1st April.
Powys Council’s Waste and Recycling Team are hoping that this competition will help the County meet recycling targets, cut landfill and carbon emissions and inspire the next generation to recycle more. “Batteries are made from recyclable metals including lead, cadmium, zinc, lithium and mercury. Each battery collected by the school can be re-melted and used to make new batteries rather than going to landfill.
Remember we are in with a chance to win a share of £500 of Amazon vouchers for Christ College as well as recycling all those batteries!
