PTA Second Hand Dressing Up Costume Sales

Posted on

To reduce landfill, fundraise and help families on low incomes many Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) organise second-hand costume sales. 

Many PTAs organise second-hand costume sales as a fundraiser for their school or organization. Second hand dressing up costume sales not only raise money for the school but also reduce landfill and help low income families purchase costumes. These sales are typically held in the weeks leading up to Halloween, World Book Day, Christmas Jumper Days or other holidays that involve dressing up in costumes. 

Many parents in the UK are becoming increasingly frustrated with the cost and expectation of costumes for World Book Day but there are cheap and easy costumes for World Book Day that require little effort!

To find out if your local PTA is hosting a second-hand costume sale, you can check their website or social media pages. You can also contact the school directly and ask if they have any information about upcoming sales.

If you're interested in donating costumes to a second-hand sale, you can reach out to your local PTA or school and ask if they are accepting donations. Donating costumes is a great way to support your local community and help others save money on their Halloween or costume needs.

Another great similar fundraising idea are Pre loved or Second Hand Uniform Sales so check out if your school runs them. New legislation means that schools in the UK are now under an obligation to hold second hand uniform sales!
