The 5 Simple Steps

Rags 2 Riches 4 Schools provide a completely free solution to raise money for your school and also help the environment. Not only do the children learn the benefits of recycling, but they also learn how to work as a team to get to a successful outcome.

Your school has a fantastic opportunity to get the money it deserves. Many schools have used the money for extra play areas, healthy food machines and even new plants and flowers to brighten the place up. Our scheme also helps contribute towards an Eco Schools flag to display proudly at your school. The process really couldn’t be easier:

  1. Call 01633 235923 to arrange a mutually convenient collection date
  2. You get a media pack to promote the event
  3. We pick up the collection on the set date
  4. We weigh the collection at the school
  5. We give 50p per kilo and aim to pay within a week*

Media pack consists of information tickets to hand out and put around the school, along with our Rags 2 Riches 4 School collection bags and round stickers to remind everyone of the collection on the following day. These are completely FREE.
