Piggy bank theft.
Sometime in the late morning of Thursday 17th May, our piggy bank was stolen from the farm gate stall, along with its contents of approximately £7. The facts that we are a not-for-profit charity, a community farm run largely by volunteers, and currently struggling for survival, makes this even more upsetting. The honesty-box worked well for eighteen months (although we were always around £5 down at the end of every week), but, like most other honesty-boxes in the area, we have had to replace it with a more secure but less friendly alternative. The piggy bank itself was painted and donated to us by a volunteer.
