Back on the streets.....

....this time, on 30th September, in Witney for our third street collection of the year.  We've previously collected in Chipping Norton and Woodstock. 

Unfortunately we arrived in Witney to find that the town had been taken over by a Breast Cancer charity with stalls and pink balloons everywhere, a brass band playing, and tin shakers in all our usual spots - and beyond.   They certainly made an impact!  So we are delighted that the people of Witney nonetheless donated over £150 to Amnesty.  And sporting our yellow day-glow gilets, thus standing out amongst the pink, we ensured that Amnesty was noticed and received several inquiries about our Local Group.  (West Oxfordshire District Council have since apologised for this clash.)

Thanks to everyone who helped with the collection - and of course to anyone who donated.
