The pennies really do make the pounds!

Today we had the job of collecting the Big Copper Count-Up from Tesco Express Winterton! This was a vital point in our push to £50K before 16th August and we were thrilled to see a result that we wanted! 

Never does it cease to amaze me how generous people are. The Big Copper Count-Up has been travelling around our small town for about two and a half years now but still continues to succeed in raising fantastic amaounts of money, to date the BCC alone has raised just shy of £11,000! 

Determind to raise as much as they can to support our branch Tesco store Manager Matthew Barlow was thrilled with the amount raised! He put lots of effort in raising the profile of the BCC being in the store by taking part in our bungee jump and encouraging people to donate in the tower, along with taking our collection tubs to different express stores in the area. Since 23rd April when the tower arrived in the store in its fourteen week period an incredible £442.18 was raised. A huge thank you to Tesco for their continued support and to everyone that has donated in the tower. We look forward to announcing the next location for the Big Copper Count-Up soon following it coming along to our £50K Celebration Evening.
