Money in Lieu
« on: May 28, 2016, 12:04:14 AM »

I was reminded about loose change and money matters when I read about the German lady who had collected more than £35,000 in loose change she had ‘gathered’ from public toilets.

I've got a round whisky 'box' (round box!!!!) full of coins, must be £80-£90 at the minute. I take it to the machine at asda and 10% goes to charity  :laugh:
I check all 2 pences for the 1983 one when they made a mistake with 'two pence' and 'new pence', I also check every 20p for the one they made one year and didn't put the date on - I've never found either  :laugh:
