Our Rag Bag Recycling Scheme is going very well.

Can we say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this over the last few months to make it such a success. The scheme has been developed to raise awareness of textile recycling and how this helps our environment. The large container can be found as you enter the main corridor of the Nursery.
If you would like to contribute to this please lift a bag and fill this with
unwanted textiles;
adult and children’s clothing,
paired shoes, hats, bags, curtains, towels and bed linen
and place your bag into the container.
These are then collected and sorted according to quality, for reuse or recycling. Good quality is exported to Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe, providing good quality affordable second hand clothing. This programme helps raise funds for the nursery, your donations are collected, weighed and then we receive a cheque within 7 days. The Nursery has collected over £200 so far which we will use to develop our Eco schools programme further.
Thanks you once again for all your support!
