On Friday 15th May, thousands of tins were donated to our 7th annual event, which took place in Wests Centre. This helps deprived people in Jersey and in Romania. All items donated, were shared equally between The Shelter Trust and The Ecce Homo Romania Outreach Group.
We also held a collection day on Friday 8th May, at two branches of Waitrose, (Red Houses and Rue Des, Pres).
Our grateful thanks to our Organiser, Michelle Cuthbert, all our volunteers who helped out on the day,and to Waitrose for allowing us to collect tins at both stores.
Once again, we have been delighted with the support that we have received for this event, from the public, Island businesses and schools.
A huge thank you must also go to the following:- Our Sponsors, Buckley & Co., Voisin-Hunter Ltd, and State Street, all of our volunteers, and Deputy Monfort Tadier for providing us with the entertainment.
It is believed that this year's event collected about 9,000 tins, a similar figure to last year's.
Pictured below are some of the pupils from St Michael's School, who collected over 700 tins of food for us this year.
Shown below are a few more pictures taken during the day. More pictures to follow shortly
