Caversham Heights Pre-School is a registered charity, and we rely on the fantastic efforts of volunteer fundraisers to buy new equipment and maintain an outstanding environment for the children.
We are pleased to announce that the school has organised a textile collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds for the pre-school.
Bag2School are the UK’s leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since its inception in 2001 they have now paid out over £20 million.
As well as raising vitally needed funds for our school, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 1,081,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted textiles in the bag provided – this can include adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys. Please note bedding, curtains, and household linen cannot be accepted (refer to www.bag2school.com for details). In addition to raising much needed funds it will also raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.
If you fill the donation bag and still have more then you can use any other bag to donate your items and don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!
If you are taking part in a challenge (such as the Reading Half Marathon) in aid of pre-school, you can use our account at mydonate.bt.com to set up an easy-to-use fundraising page.
Aron’s daddy is doing his first ever 100 mile run on 17 October 2015. He is hoping to complete it in under 24hours! He would like to use this opportunity to raise some funds for the pre-school. If you would like to give him some further motivation please could you sponsor him here:

You don’t need to run a marathon to help! Register with easyfundraising.org.uk and you can raise money for pre-school every time you shop online.
It works in a similar way to nectar, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for pre-school instead. For example, John Lewis will donate 2.5% of each order, Amazon 2.5%, and The Body Shop 10%, thousands of well known stores are signed up.
