Powerstown Educate Together National School
are running a clothing collection in conjunction with Bag2School Ireland.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate any unwanted textiles in the bag provided. This can include adult and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, bags and teddies (no duvets, bedding, pillows, curtains and towels). The clothes have to be of good quality for reuse in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. Our school funds will receive 50c a kilo which will be a great boost for our fundraising. The LauraLynn House will also receive an additional 10% from Bag2School. In addition it will raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.
The Lauralynn House is the only Children’s Hospice in Ireland.
Their mission is “The Children’s Sunshine Home cares for children with life limiting conditions, and their families, by providing high quality transitional care, home support, respite, crisis and end-of-life care. Our services are available to children with high medical and nursing needs from birth to 18.”
Please try to fill as many bags as you can, don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!
Bag2School will be collecting on the morning of Thursday 25th October 2012. Please return your bag (or bags!) to us and help us have a really good collection!
Many thanks indeed for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
