Hornchurch students recycle their unwanted clothes while raising money for charity

Students at a school helped to raise more than �180 for charity by recycling their unwanted clothes.

The pupils at Sanders Draper School in Suttons Lane, Hornchurch helped to raise the funds for Children In Need recently.

The project saw the students bringing in their unwanted clothing and textiles so that they could be recycled.

The event was part of a scheme called Phil The Bag, which recycles unwanted clothes and materials from schools in exchange for funds.

The money raised from the event is set to go towards the �1,200 that the school has already raised for Children In Need.
