Happy School Bag Fundraising Scheme

Clothing Donation Methods

We have 3 easy clothing donation methods to choose from! In today's fast fashion world, clothes quickly fill up our wardrobes, and unfortunately, some end up living there permanently. We all love excuses to buy new outfits, whether for events, trends, weight loss, changing seasons, or a shift in style.

Instead of discarding old clothes, we offer a recycling solution that benefits the environment and raises funds for your local school! Here's our collection methods:

Bags Collection

The most common/convenient clothing donation method - Suitable for schools with no storage facilities.
  1. Please fill out our booking form on our website.
  2. We will provide you with our Happy School Bags in bulk at no cost, accompanied by promotional posters to assist in advertising the collection. Moreover, we will provide you with the necessary content one month before the collection date.
  3. Students will take the bags home and fill them with clothing donations, which can consist of reusable unwanted clothes, paired shoes, accessories, belts, hats, jewelry, and more.
  4. If you have no storage space, don’t worry. On the collection day, our driver will arrive to weigh the bags filled with clothing donations and load them into the van.

    Additionally, you will receive a receipt for the kilograms collected via the email provided. Please note that the funds for collections are transferred on the following Friday via BACS.

Indoor Promotional Dropbox

Suitable for schools with storage facilities to boost more collections (Coming sept 2024)

Combining our indoor dropbox with a bags collection service, serves as an excellent clothing donation method, especially 2-3 weeks leading up to the collection date. This approach gives parents and pupils more time to donate.

  1. Contact us to arrange delivery of an indoor drop box to your school.
  2. Position the dropbox indoors where it can be easily accessed by pupils, parents and staff for clothing donations.
  3. Once the dropbox is full, its contents can be emptied and stored in a storage room, allowing more clothing donations to be placed in it.
