TINS TRIUMPH

Right at the outset of the FACE fundraising campaign some collection tins were bought at the pound shop and having been suitably decorated were handed out for folks to fill with their spare loose change…and after one year those pennies really turned into pounds.
At the December FACE Supper the tins were handed in and more than £500 was tallied up from all the coins (and some notes) they contained.
King of the collectors had to be Tony Mankelow with £289 in the tin he had placed in his jewellery shop in Sheerness. And if he was King then Joy Cockerton was Queen Collector having brought in a steady stream of filled tins from her friendly local garden centre.
