You can also help us to fundraise by donating the following:

cash4coins – Look out for posters and collection buckets around the school during our cash4coins collection weeks, where we will be collecting old British or foreign coins and notes, even obsolete currency. The currency is then sent to who exchange it into cash we can use. This will be running throughout the year so keep it coming please.

Bags2School – Twice per year you can donate your adult and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys (bedding, curtains, and household linen cannot be accepted) to our Bags2School events More information will be sent home in bookbags nearer the time.

Empties Please – Please donate your printer cartridges for our Empties Please recycling which runs all year. Small recycle bags are available from the office.
