House to house collections
Our annual house to house collections took places at the end of June and beginning of July. This year, we decided to collect only in the villages surrounding Buckingham and not in the town itself. This decision was driven by the difficulty of recruiting new collectors to replace those retiring, several of whom have helped us with this for very many years.
Despite the austere times in which we live, the generosity of those from whom we collected was undiminished and the average content of each box was only a little less than in years past. In total, we received £1218.
That deserves a sincere thank you to all our collectors and those who donated.
