All you need to do is follow steps 1 to 4 to start raising money for schools through clothing recycling and our schools and ptas fundraising scheme!
When you’ve decided that EcoKids and our clothes recycling scheme is the right school fundraising idea for you, you will need to register with us.
Once you’ve registered with us, a friendly member of the EcoKids team will call you to discuss your school fundraising plans and how we can help with our easy fundraising scheme.
When a collection date has been booked, it’s time to kick start your school fundraising! As EcoKids is a cost free way of raising money for schools, the collection bags & promotional materials (posters and leaflets) will be delivered to you, free of charge!
We advise that you allow plenty of time to distribute the clothes recycling bags and to promote your school fundraising collection.
Two days before collection you will receive a courtesy call/email, just to make sure that everything is still OK for the arranged date & time. This is also to ensure your clothes recycling collection has a minimum of 50 full EcoKids bags of clothing ready.
On collection day our EcoKids driver and van will arrive at the designated collection address. Our EcoKids driver will collect the clothing bags, weigh them and issue you with a receipt. Upon his return to the depot, the contents will be checked. The items that we can’t take, will be rejected, weighed and deducted from the initial weight on your receipt. These results will be emailed to you and then we will send you our payment!
The amount of money you have raised from your school fundraising collection will be emailed to you within 7 days.
In accordance with your payment instructions (cheque & BACS), the payment with a certificate of achievement and an award for every child will be sent to you.
The clothes are then recycled to deprived families in countries in Eastern Europe and Africa.
We've just had our 8th EcoKids collection for St Michael's CE Primary School in Lichfield and a fab £341 was raised!
As usual, Roz and her team did us proud!
Always a pleasure to organise this event for our PTA as it's an amazing fundraiser.
See you again next year!
All our fundraising efforts go to providing the children at school with new equipment and treats such as school trips to places they have never ventured before such as the seaside.
All our EcoKids fundraising collections so far have gone towards providing the children with a fabulous trim trail which was put in place earlier this year. In total we raised over £10,000 for the Trim Trail. Thank you EcoKids for providing a fundraising tool that is easy and hassle free and has helped us reach our fundraising targets so far
We are a Year 1 Class at Norbridge Academy. The school is taking part in a year of giving so each class has chosen a charity to support. Cherry Tree class have chosen Rain Rescue, an animal shelter in Rotherham.
Throughout the year we will be hoping to raise as much money as possible to donate to Rain Rescue, so when we discovered EcoKids we thought it would be a fantastic way of raising money.
From registering to arranging the collection, everything with EcoKids has been easy and hassle free.
We now can't wait for our collection and find out how much has been raised!
