We raised over £350 at Liverpool Street at a previous collection despite the desperate shortage of collectors. In fact, they were so short of collectors they had to juggle the rota to ensure the buckets would never be left unattended at any time. Please could I ask, could you or anyone trustworthy that you know please consider helping at some of the future collections. Even if someone only gives an hour it could be a big help.

The next collection is on Friday 19th April at London Victoria Station.
P.S. Some of us wear parrot costumes when collecting. There is no compulsion to do so but you will have much more fun if you do, and you also get a lot of friendly attention, appreciative comments and much more in donations if you do.
P.P.S. New station rules require that each collector needs to be able to bring and show EITHER a valid passport OR photo driving licence before being allowed to collect. This may be part of the reason why the number of collectors has fallen recently as some of our previous collectors may not have had either.
More 2013 APA collections are also confirmed for these dates;
13th June - Liverpool Street
6th Sept - Waterloo
13th Dec - Paddington
(The recent collection we had at Cannon Street station on 8 Feb raised just over £650)
