A family in Southwest Wales in 2013 held some fundraising activities at their son’s school. Their son did a guess how many gumdrops are in the jar and raised £32! The family also sold craft bits that they made as part of their new craft venture, Cinnamon and Timbit and sold £57 worth. This provided the family with the opportunity to speak to many parents and teachers about PC.
