    I save 5p coins in a bottle I cannot see a challenge for it so I am setting one up.

    Lets see how much we can save in 5p coins between now and the end of the year.

    If you wish to join please leave your name and I will allocate you a number.

    You can set yourself a target or just see how you can save. Good Luck.

    £3.25 in the cash box. But that's really the float for tabletop sales...

    I've been collecting 5p's for some time now. Apparently a wine bottle holds about £70-75. Not sure how accurate that is but since we are at the top of the label we shouldn't have too long to find out. We would have had almost a full bottle by now but eldest DS raided it to buy himself lunch one day when we were all out and can't remember if he took £3, £5 or £8 worth.
