    Hi All,

    Due to unforseen circumstances I ended up pulling out of this challenge this year but I think that I will have another go if no one minds??

    I don't have a target but will see how much I can get saved in the demi-john.

    I will empty the demi-john and count it up and bank it and re-start it again for this challenge.

    Good luck all.

    Tea

    Hi,

    Thanks for starting this thread - it really does work, I signed up last year with a target of £300, but got £494ish. It allowed me to make an overpayment to CCCS.

    Please can you give me a number for 2009? I have a coffee tin wrapped in Xmasy paper for £1 and £2, and an oversized plastic coke bottle for 20p and under.

    Once I have my new number, I will update my signature.

    Thanks

    Hi (again),

    Looked up the wrong number, I see that I have a number already - please ignore my last post.

    Thanks

  • Woo... #320 checking in.

    I've got two tins and my only target is to fill them both. Everything but 20ps and £1 coins are going in it and I've thrown quite a few in already this morning.

    Happy saving everyone :D
