  1. Bag2School

 Last reminder – the collection is on Thursday

Twice a year, in the Spring and Autumn, The Dry Drayton School & Village Association arranges a collection of secondhand clothing for the Bag2School scheme, in order to raise funds. The next collection will take place during the morning of Thursday 8th October. Clean, good quality second-hand adults’ and children’s clothing, shoes, bags, belts, hats, ties, scarves, jewellery, lingerie and soft toys are all welcome. The following items, however, are no longer accepted:-

  • Pillows and cushions
  • Duvets, bedding, blankets, household linen
  • Carpets, rugs and mats (including bath, shower and toilet mats)
  • Curtains
  • Towels
  • Soiled, painted, ripped or wet clothing
  • School uniforms
  • Corporate clothing and workwear
  • Textile off cuts, yarns or threaded material

The heavier the bags are the better, as Bag2School pay us per kilo! In a couple of weeks’ time, you will receive a special Bag2School bag through your door. However, any other kind of bag can also be used, so you could start collecting now! Please could all shoes be paired up, with an elastic band round them or else with the laces tied.

Please bring all bags – big and small – to the School, or leave them outside the Village Hall, as early in the morning as you can on 8th October. Collection may also be possible if you are unable to deliver. Another collection is being planned for March/April 2016.

Please contact Anne Deane, the village Bag2School co-ordinator, on 07718 305141 or deanery2@talktalk.net, for more info or to discuss collection. She has plenty of Bag2school bags available now, if you need them in advance of collection day, and can store your bags if you wish to hand them over early…
