Before the trip I made 4 collection tins and managed to get them out to 4 local locations, Costa in Kings Lynn, B&Q in Kings Lynn, Tesco in Heacham and Infinity Motorcycles in Norwich. We have now collected and counted each of them :
Infinity Motorcycles, Norwich – £3.86
B&Q, Kings Lynn – £1.77
Tesco, Heacham – £12.61
Costa, Hardwick, Kings Lynn – £66.34
The total was £84.58.
There was a large difference in the amounts collected and I was a little disappointed in 2 of the tins really considering they were sat for 4 weeks. The Infinity tin surprised me since the people buying stuff in the store were all bikers but I guess the turnover of people isn’t that great in there. The £3.86 raised doesn’t even cover 1/4 of cost of the fuel I used driving to Norwich to put it there, I’d have been better off chucking a £5 in the tin and not taking it but who was to know. B&Q was a real disappointment being a large major retail store, £1.77! Tesco did quite a bit better and really without Costa raising the £66.34 the collection would have been a bit of a waste of effort. However every penny counts and the £84.58 all adds to the total, thanks to everyone who donated via the collections tins!
