Clothing collection

We are having another clothing collection to raise money for our school.  Do you have clothes in your wardrobe you no longer wear?   Please help us fundraise by donating your good quality, unwanted, re-usable clothes and accessories.  Bags to fill will be sent home in the next few weeks.

Please bring your donations to school on the morning of Monday 11th March.

We really appreciate your support in helping raise additional funds for our school for the benefit of all our children.   Thank you
