Spring will be soon upon us now is the time to start thinking about our spring cleaning and decluttering our wardrobes. We are always looking for ways to fund raise for charities. In a charity meeting with the children, it was suggested that we could maybe help disadvantaged families.
Thinking hats went on and we think that we have come up with an idea that will solve two problems at once. Bags2School is an organisation that specialises in good quality second hand clothing that can be reused.
Bags will were put into your child’s book bag on Monday and all we ask is that if you could fill up the bag with the following if you could spare or want to get rid of: Good quality adults and children’s clothing, paired shoes, hats, belts, handbags, soft toys, bedding, curtains and towels.
Please bring your donations to school by the 25th April. Bags2School will then collect the bags, which will be weighed and they will pay Oasis Academy the total weight collected.
Remember the more we collect, the bigger the donation we can give to Charity. Other bag types are also accepted e.g. bin liners, there is no limit. The Charity committee will then decide how we should choose which Charity receives the money. We would like to thank you for your support as always.”
Thank you to all who have filled and dropped bags off already!
