'Kindness & Values' Community Week

'Kindness & Values' Community Week 21st-25th January


As part of the events taking place next week during our ‘Kindness and Values’ week, we are asking for donations of old clothes, which will be given to Bag2School, a ‘Cash for Clothes’ charity. More information can be found at


The money made will be donated to Barnardo’s. Barnardo's is the UK’s leading children’s charity and protects, supports and nurtures the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. Bag2School can accept the following ‘good quality’ clothes for re-use:

  • Adults or children’s clothing
  • Paired shoes (tied together)
  • Handbags
  • Hats
  • Scarves and ties

Please note that they cannot accept: soiled, painted, ripped or wet clothing or school uniform.


We are also asking for donations of sealed, non-perishable food items (i.e. tins, dried pasta and rice, biscuits) and plastic tupperware/food containers. These will be donated to Ealing Soup Kitchen. Ealing Soup Kitchen is a charity which has been helping the homeless and vulnerable people in need in the community for over 40 years, by providing hot, nutritious food and a helping hand. More information can be found at


Please could both clothes and food items be brought into your child’s class, in plastic bags, on Thursday 24th January 2019. These items will then be collected and organised by Year 4 pupils and passed on to the relevant charity.
