Having arrived in the Winterton shop at the start of September the Big Copper Count-Up has now left Grays Family Butchers and Bakers after its five month spell in the Butchers having raised a fantastic £378.46, putting them in seventh place on the leader board, just below the last spell the tower had in the Winterton Butchers shop.

In support of the national small change big impact campaign that took place during September Grays worked with us to launch our Mini Copper Count-Up's campaign. The Mini Copper Count-Up's are an initiative launched for collecting copper and change in at home to then be transferred into the Big Copper Count-Up. Gray's had the Mini Copper Count-Up's available in store for customers to home to collect their change in to help raise as much as possible to beat blood cancer.

At Christmas time the Butchers ran a competition to give the lucky winner a Christmas to remember. For £2 customers would be entered into a draw to be in with a chance of winning a turkey with accompaniments worth £100 for their Christmas dinner. The turkey was very kindly purchased by Grays and the accompaniments donated by Copas with 100% of the donation going to our branch in the large tower.

Grays Butchers and Bakers have supported our branch since our formation in 2011 and are a very kind hearted business that always show willing to support their community. The shop has helped us to raise hundreds of pounds to help beat blood cancer over the years and we are extremely grateful to them for all that they do, it’s this kind of support that lays the foundations in our organisation and is paramount to our success.

The Big Copper Count-Up may have left the Winterton Butchers shop but customers are still able to donate to our cause with the collection tub that remains on the counter top

The next location for the Big Copper Count-Up will be John Leggott College in Scunthorpe where it will arrive week commencing 26th January. The college are due to annouce their plans to support our branch over the next few days.

Fantastic effort by everyone involved at Grays which really goes to show that small change really can make a big impact. They've set the bar high for John Leggott College as they take over ownership of the Big Copper Count-Up.

Keep up the good work & thanks as always for all your support.

Thanks Andy! As we say 'every penny counts' and they certainly do! 

Grays have always been fantastic supporters of the branch and this is another fine example of their fantastic support! We look forward to sharing the news of John Leggott Colleges support this week!
