Recycling scheme for charity
A PRIMARY school has launched a recycling drive for charity.
Fourlanesend Primary School in Cawsand has teamed up with Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) to launch a new clothes recycling scheme to raise money for the school and The Salvation Army.
The school is participating in SATCoL's 'Recycle With Michael' children's scheme, in which SATCoL provides a colourful clothes bank for the school.
It is designed to encourage children and their families to bring their unwanted clothes, shoes and household textile items into school and put them into the bank.

When the bank is full, local collectors from SATCoL pick up the donations and the school is rewarded with an amount of money to spend on its own facilities or within the community, dependent on the weight of donations.
The textiles SATCoL collects are either re-used or recycled, with some being sold in SATCoL's charity shops, others being given to The Salvation Army to be used to help people in need.
Profit from the sale of the donations is gift-aided to The Salvation Army to help fund its work in homelessness, elderly care and help at emergency incidents.
