This is an idea to be able to raise additional money for the church development project.
All you need to do is simply empty any loose change from your pocket / purse /wallet at the end of the day and put it into a jar or pot
When we have our next fund raising event or when the pot is getting full just empty it into a bag and bring it to the event or to church.
If you qualify for gift aid don't forget to include your donor number in the bag so we can claim the gift aid.
