Charity-minded children at Cooper's Edge School have been donating their unwanted clothes to help the needy.

A recycling scheme has been launched there with the Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd.

Pupils have been bringing in garments, shoes and household textile to fill their new clothes bank. The school is given a cash reward each time it fills it up.

The textiles are then either re-used, recycled, sold in charity shops or given to The Salvation Army to be used to help people in need

Headteacher Keely Foler said: "It's a fun way to teach children about the importance of textile recycling."

    What a fantastic scheme. And a great way to educate the young about making the most of our resources whilst helping others.
