Children are tops at fundraising for Springboard Project


Children at Greenway Academy are collecting plastic milk bottle tops to raise money for the Springboard Project – and they are calling on people to help them fill their collection bin.

Springboard is a Horsham-based charity that provides activities and short breaks for more than 200 disabled children and young people.

Greenway headteacher Karen White said the school was “very excited” to be part of the community initiative which they heard about through one of the Year 3 parents.

She added: “By giving your used plastic milk bottle tops – please wash and remove labels – you can help raise funds to help give our disabled children more of these enjoyable opportunities. Recycling 360,000 bottle tops – 500kgs – raises £30 towards a day out.”

Any bottle tops which bear a recycling triangle and the numbers 2, 4, 02 or 04 can be dropped into the collection bin outside the main entrance of the school, in Greenway, during school hours until May 27.
