When Lesley Henderson locked herself out of her house one day, Dave came to her rescue and opened the door to get her back in. Then when Lesley told him about our very full, very locked collection drum, he kindly volunteered to rescue that too! He drove to collect it, loaded the massive heavy thing into his van and then tried to pick the lock.
Dave is an experienced and competent locksmith but was puzzled when he found this to be one of the hardest locks he’d ever had to pick. That might be because the drum was was made for us by the prisoners of Acklington Prison! He got the door open, of course. We were amazed by just how many coins there were inside!
Dave kindly donated his time and skills to open this door for us. Thanks Dave! Now we need your help to use the money from the collection drum to continue our work opening to doorway to early action in autism. All those coins need to be counted before we can bank them. There are so many that Dave had to half empty the drum before it could be loaded into his van! Could you spare an hour or two, or even a whole day to come and help us figure out just how much was in that drum? We’ll keep you going with tea and coffee and maybe a biccie or two. Come for a whole day and we’ll give you lunch. If you’d like to help, give us a call on 03003653055 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
