Meldrum Parents in Partnership’s (MPIP) Rag Bank has been in place for several months and is proving popular and so far we have raised £569 for the Primary School. On the back of this, Mpip has scheduled a large one off collection whereby everyone in the school can take along all their textile recycling on one date.

The scheduled date of collection is Tuesday 11th Feb. The large storage container in the Early Stages Playground is where your donations are to be placed. The container will be open on Monday 10th Feb during the school day and then first thing on the morning of Tuesday 11th.

Please take your donations to the container on the Monday if possible.

We will shortly issue each family with a collection bag but feel free to fill any other clean bag if you have a large amount.

We can accept the following items:

  • All men’s, ladies and children’s clothing
  • Paired shoes (tied together)
  • Handbags, bags, ties & belts
  • Household linen & towels

We CANNOT accept the following items:

  •   Duvets both synthetic and feathered
  •   Pillows & cushions
  •   Carpets & Rugs
  •   Soiled or wet clothing
  •   Uniforms & workwear
  •   Shredded or mutilated textile material
  •   Textile off cuts, yarns or threaded material

Thank you for your continued support.

NB Parents with small children, please be aware during drop off and pick up times that the container will be open and may prove to be a big attraction to little people!
