Now until end of March - Surrey schools ‘Recycle with Michael’ challenge
|Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd launches recycling competition|
|Surrey schools are being encouraged to ‘Recycle with Michael’, as part of an imitative by The Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd to divert thousands of tonnes of unwanted clothing and shoes away from landfill.
Local schools that sign up to the scheme will be challenged to fill as many bags as possible before the end of March 2019, for the chance to be crowned Michael’s recycling champions. The winning school – calculated as the one with the highest ratio of bags to pupils - will receive a trophy, certificate and a very special visit from Michael, the scheme’s mascot.
Designed especially for primary school-aged children, the programme is also an important way for schools to generate much-needed funds - a percentage of the bags’ financial value is donated back to the school to spend how they wish. The remaining funds raised will go towards supporting The Salvation Army’s important work to help vulnerable people from all walks of life in communities across the UK.
The scheme aims to educate young people about the importance of recycling in a fun and engaging way. The programme is supported by free downloadable school materials such as presentations, posters and lesson plans which teach environmental and charitable messages.
Recycle with Michael is a simple and effective way to deal with the UK’s fastest growing source of household waste – textiles - as all donations are either reused or recycled.
Schools can sign up by visiting https://recyclewithmichael.co.

Thursday 28th February - RPSB talk - The Jewel Hunter
February started out cold, snowy and wet so if you’d like to “visit” the warmth of some tropical forests why not come along to the RSPB North West Surrey Local Group’s talk on 28th February. This month Chris Goodie will be giving an illustrated talk entitled “The Jewel Hunter” about how he gave up his job to spend a year looking for all 32 species of the world’s pittas – that’s the birds not the bread! Pittas are brilliantly coloured inhabitants of the tropical forests of Africa, Asia and Australia. Chris’ book about his year long adventure topped the sales at Birdfair so do join us as he shares his experiences with us.
This takes place at the St Charles Borromeo School in Weybridge, from 19:45 - 22:00, doors open 19:15, price £3 for non-Local Group members.
More details about the above as well as future events can be found on our website rspb.org.uk/groups/nwsurrey.
The RSPB North West Surrey Local Group is one of many affiliated to the RSPB. Between September and June, we invite naturalists and wildlife photographers to give illustrated talks at our popular evening indoor meetings. Also, throughout the year, we guide outdoor walks in Surrey and further afield.
