  1. Waste:

Cash for Clobber:

This year as part of our Eco-Schools projects we are participating in ‘Cash for Clobber’. This is a nationwide scheme, working with your local council to educate and encourage re-wear, while raising funds for our school.

Raise money for your school and help save the planet

  • ‘Cash for Clobber’ gives our school the opportunity to raise cash in partnership with Cookstown Textile Recyclers (CTR).
  • The scheme encourages clothes/textile recycling at our school by exchanging bags of unwanted clothes for cash.

Cash for Clobber represents great value per kilo at 40 pence

All you have to do is send in any unwanted items into your child’s class and we will take care of the rest.  You can send in:

  • All types of clean, re-wearable clothing
  • Handbags and paired shoes (please tie shoes together using laces)
  • Hats and belts.
