Bag2School for Kenya

Today we again took part in our Bag2School fundraising activities, with the lorry coming to school to weigh and collect the bags of clothing brought in by pupils and staff. Today this weighed approx. 160kg which earns us around £60. Some pupils helped to carry out the heavy bags which will go to importers and wholesalers in many countries of Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia and then be sold to those who rely on 2nd hand clothes as their sole option for good quality items. For us, this time, Bag2School converts the bags donated to cash – this will be used to sponsor individuals to attend our link orphanage school in Kenya, through the [Love for Kenya](http://loveforkenya.org charity). Once again, thanks to all who donated.
