How our scheme
Simply fill in the online booking form or contact us by telephone.
We will arrange a suitable collection date and time.
Once a collection date has been confirmed we will send you our collection bags along with advertising posters to help you to advertise collection around the school.
The children take the bags home and fill them up with unwanted clothes, paired shoes and accessories.
A courtesy call will be made a couple of days before your collection date to confirm that you are ready.
The children bring the bags to school on the collection day and our driver arrives on the arranged time.
The bags are weighed on our calibrated scales.
A BACS payment is transferred directly to your designated Bank Account for a sum based on the total weight that was collected.
Your feedback is important to us as it helps us to identify areas where we need to improve and evaluate changes.

To book a collection the minimal weight requirement is no less than 200 Kg
Our current rate is £0.30p/kg. It may vary depending on the market trends and we reserve the right to change it.
We reserve the right to cancel/refuse future bookings if any of the items we don't accept are included in the bags.
We also reserve the right to deduct the weight of unsuitable items after the collection has taken place. We weigh the collections upfront and in good faith without prior inspection, so it is vital that the school ensures that no unsuitable items are included in the collection.
TIP: In wet weather, protect your Happy School Bag collection by covering the bags with a plastic sheet, ideally store them in a dry and sheltered area, because the clothes cannot be reused if they are wet or damp and we couldn't accept them, so it is important to keep the clothes fresh and dry before they are collected by us.
Thank you for your cooperation and happy fundraising!
