Penny Boxes:

Quite a few of our members have kindly offered to have small little penny boxes to collect their small change.  Pennies really do make pounds so if you think you can spare some of your coppers call us for a box.

Just a small donation monthly can make a huge difference.  Contact Jean to find out how.
