A BIG thank you to everyone who assisted with this year's Tinathon. We received around 5,000 tins of food which will be shared between The Shelter Trust and our event partners Mustard Seed Jersey, who work with a number of small charity foundations in Romania, Ukraine and Moldova, to ease suffering in eastern Europe.
We are extremely grateful for the support of our sponsors Deutsche Bank and State Street, and to all the schools, churches and local businesses who took part.
Special mention must be made of the children, staff and parents of St Michael's School, who collected over 900 tins. A fantastic effort.
Lastly, but by no means least, we'd like to thank Marcus Butel of The Sign Studio for his much-needed help, assistance and support, not just of the Tinathon but also the annual Soup Kitchen. We hope to see you all again in West's Centre next year.
