There is a local Bag2School collection of clothes, shoes, accessories, bedding, curtains, towels, cuddly toys  etc. The proceeds are split between St John's, St. Mary's and Willink PTAs. Collections are made from both outside houses and at school (see the Calendar for dates).

We have been collecting for our local schools for about 14 years now and we regularly receive about 1 tonne per collection which means Mortimer and surrounds have put into Bag2school bags over 42 tonnes of unwanted clothing over the years. The Bag2school team have recently released a statement which explains how the scheme works and also suggests alternatives particularly for items which cannot be accepted.
