Playgroup needs used biscuit wrappers to raise money for new premises

TODDLERS who have been taking the biscuit and turning empty wrappers into recycled goods need your help to win vital funds for their playgroup.
Staff and children at Puddleducks Playgroup in Chalford Hill are collecting biscuit wrappers as part of a national fundraising competition to see who can save the most used wrappers from landfill.
Puddleducks is currently in sixth place in the Biscuit Wrapper Roundup, which will see the top 20 collectors win contributions of £250, £150, £50, or £20 when the contest ends in October.
Children also earn TerraCycle points for the weight of wrappers they collect and each point can be redeemed for money towards the playground.
Staff and parents are hoping to win some money to be used in their quest for new premises, as they are currently based in a shared community hall.
Parent Tricia Watson, who collects with TerraCycle on a number of other recycling schemes on behalf of Puddleducks Playgroup, has arranged a collection point at the Greenshop in Calf Way for people to donate wrappers.
She said: “We have managed to save an incredible 3,095 used biscuit wrappers from landfill, raising £86.24 for the playgroup."
Biscuit wrappers can be dropped off at a collection box in the foyer of the Greenshop in Calf Way near Bisley from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 1pm on Sundays.
