Fund-raising through can collections since April 2015 has brought in the following:
|2015-16||24 Apr 15||Sainsbury||Meadowbank||£360.96|
|25 Apr 15||£357.87||£718.83|
|8 May 15||Tesco||Broughton Rd||£408.81|
|9 May 15||£395.12||£803.93|
Many thanks to volunteers who participate in the 2-hour stints. And to customers who increasingly give generously. Contrary to belief, only 1% of collections are made up of coppers. Our presence in supermarkets is also a good way of raising awareness of the work of the Scottish Wildlife Trust and often saying ‘Hello’ to members.
Our next collections are as follows:
29th & 30th May, Tesco Bathgate
26th & 27th June, Sainsbury Cameron Toll
VOLUNTEERS are needed so if you are willing to do a slot of 2-hours in a venue near you please contact Averil Stewart 01506 842676. It can be quite fun being on duty with another like-minded enthusiast for Scotland Wildlife. The money is critical to the management of our local wildlife reserves and to subsidising the lecture programme plus making a contribution to SWT HQ.
