Money Around the Mill Pond - The Sun Shone & Folk were Generous



 

Mothering Sunday dawned bright and breezy and the Emsworth Sailing Club Money Round The Mill Pond team, suitably clad in Comic Relief T Shirts, hit the ground running.
Junior Captains Grace Summers and James Taylor, aided by Hugo Warwick, set to and laid a tape line along the length of the millpond promenade between the ESC and Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club.
Then, starting at both ends we began to put down the money already collected by local schools, pubs and shops. We met in the middle at mid-day.
From then on it grew and grew with all the walkers and families out on such a lovely day adding their loose change to the trail. As well as change the team was given 420 in notes.

The hardest task was collecting up the coins!

A big thank you to every single person, school, shop & pub who donated coins & notes to this Comic Relief Event.
