About us

At Happy School Bag we offer schools the opportunity to raise funds at the same time help our environment by keeping valuable and usable resources out of landfills. We specialize in collecting and buying quality second hand clothes, working together with the pupils, parents and teachers to fundraise, recycle and educate. The scheme is suited for schools from playgroups to colleges. This cost free programme promotes recycling in school and encourages children to become involved in waste reduction.

So book a collection with us and start fundraising now!!

How our scheme


The Happy School Bag scheme is free, quick and easy

1Simply fill the online booking form or contact us by phone.
2We will arrange with you a suitable date and time of collection.
3Once a date is confirmed you will have plenty of time to prepare .We will send you our green collection bags and promotional posters to help you advertise your collection around the school.
4The children take the bags home and fill them with unwanted clothes, paired shoes or trainers, handbags and belts.
5A courtesy call will be made a couple of days before your collection to make sure everything is still ok to go ahead with the collection.
6No storage, No problem. On the date agreed the children bring the bags to school and our driver arrives at the school.
7The collection is weighed and lased on the van.
8After the driver has weighed the whole collection the money will be transferred into the preferred account, you will receive payment on the same day as the collection. Alternatively we can also offer schools the option of payment via cheque which is written on the spot. The payment could be made to the school or to a chosen charity.
9We welcome your feedback so you will receive a feedback form to tell us how your collection went.
