I am delighted to report that 22nd & 23rd January collections at Tesco Colinton brought in the grand total of £857.38. The Friday was such a filthy day not surprisingly there were fewer shoppers and donations less (£388.92). However the following day was so much milder that there was almost £80 more (£468.46). A few membership leaflets were given out and the hand puppets certainly entertained many of the shoppers besides children. A very worthwhile couple of days.
A big thank you to those who gave up a couple of hours to raise much needed funds which help sponsor the lecture programme and help with management on local nature reserves such as Bawsinch and Petershill, Bathgate.
I hope to receive a couple more dates from Tesco HQ and elsewhere and will be in touch again.
Meantime we have held 11 days in this financial year and raised £4641.96, a marginal average drop from last year.
Again many thanks, warm regards and all the best for 2016
