We are very pleased to announce our May month end 2014 collection box figures, with £267.88p collected, against £361.90p for May 2013.
Our year to date Collection Box total is £1,119.72p compared to £1,154.80p for this time last year.
We currently have 120 collection boxes out and about in the team’s operational area and with a small number of individual supporters, having lost two sites since our last report.
Sadly no monies have been recovered from the recent theft of a collection box from that of Support Group member Gary Melia’s shop; The Barber Shop, in Deansgate, Radcliffe, (See website ‘News’ report dated Friday 28th March 2014.
We continue to feel that there is tremendous scope to increase the number of boxes we have out in the local community we serve, and to this end we are ever grateful to ‘The Bolton News’ for regular articles requesting its readership to support us.
Our ‘target’ figure remains to increase the number of boxes we have out and about to 150 x and in this respect we are continuing to appeal to our wide readership to help us find thirty new sites including considering hosting a box at their workplace.
If you feel you can kindly help us in this way please contact us via the addresses given within the ‘contacts’ section of our website.
We offer our sincere thanks to all who so kindly host a box and of course to the large number of supporters who contribute to so regularly filling up all our boxes out and about.
All our boxes are regularly emptied with all sites thanked and acknowledged each time a box is emptied.
Additionally at each year end, all sites who have generated over £50.00 but under £100.00 receive a laminated Certificate of Thanks.
Those sites who have raised over £100.00 in the year receive a Team Plaque when reached for the first time, and then in subsequent years a Framed Certificate of Thanks.
