The Big Copper Count-Up is a big money container that travels around local businesses such as pubs, schools and shops for people to donate any copper and loose change.
The Big Copper Count-Up has now left Burton Primary School having raised an amazing £300.22! Burton Primary School were determined to fill the tower and in the end came just 8cm away from reaching the top! Whilst the tower was in the school, they held a mile of pennies event to help increase the amount of money raised. Following the Mile of Pennies attempt the school said:
'On behalf of all the staff and pupils we would like to say a huge thank you to all those people who have donated their pennies towards our ‘Mile of Pennies’ attempt on Friday 13th December 2013. (our original date of 5th December was postponed due the high winds and subsequent flooding). Although we didn’t complete the mile, the pennies which you donated helped towards the grand total of £271.89 which we have now added to the Great Copper Count Up Tube in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
Once again, many thanks.'
We would like to thank the school for thier continued support and the fantastic effort that they have put into raising funds for our branch.The Big Copper Count-Up's next location will be the Co-op in Winterton where it will arrive on Monday 3rd February 2014!
