20p challenge:

This is a game ideal for pubs and cafes. Customers are challenged to balance a 20p on top of a lemon which is in a bowl of water. If successful, they receive a free coffee/pint. If unsuccessful, no matter, all fallen 20ps are brought back to us! We need volunteers to help bring this idea to their local pubs and cafes. See an example here.
