Cash for Clobber.
Toonagh Parents Association is holding a clothes collection on Thursday, Jan. 30 next to raise funds for the school. As usual, clean clothes, bed linen,  belts, bags, shoes, towels, curtains are acceptable - NO duvets, pillows, cushions please, as those have then to be taken to the Recycling Centre, and paid for to be disposed by the Association, which eats into the funds which are so necessary for the school.
