Collection buckets take in almost £500 for Newport appeal

Written by on July 17, 2020

Collection buckets that are accessible again thanks to the reopening of shops have already raised almost £500 for a good cause in Newport.

In the last two weeks, the collection buckets around Newport for the Cottage Care Centre League of Friends’ appeal to fund a new X-ray machine have taken at least £488.

They are situated at Bike-Tek, the Newport Liquor Store, Vaypa Port, Samuels of Shropshire and Number 45. The last of these has seen £179 donated.

Town mayor Peter Scott set up an online fundraiser to support the £150,000 appeal. The JustGiving page will run for another two weeks, during which time he hopes the ultimate target will be met.
