At their last meeting for the year, our Middle School Student Leaders were able to present Jenny, from Bread Tags for Wheelchairs, with 53kg of tags! What an amazing effort.
Jenny shared with the leaders how this charity began in South Africa and how she became the Australian representative in 2019. Over these three years, the idea of collecting bread tags to be recycled as a way of raising funds for wheelchairs has spread throughout the whole of Australia. The project has raised funds for 40 wheelchairs in that time. It takes about 200kg to raise the money for one... We have been able to support a quarter of a chair!
Over the holidays, please keep collecting them, as the King's Community will continue to support this great charity (and save plastics from going into landfill).
