We need your old pillow cases!

Textiles teacher Mrs Knight and a group of KS4 students are looking for any spare, clean fabric to make simple dresses for girls in Africa.

The road is especially tough for little girls and young women who are often dressed in nothing but rags. Often small children are left as primary care-givers of even younger children, because of disease and poverty and their families are unable to provide clothes for them to wear. These little dresses plant the seed that they are worthy.

Please send in any old (but clean) pillow cases, duvet covers or any other large-ish scraps of fabric and give them directly to Ms Knight or leave in reception for her to collect.

Many thanks
