Landlord's carving coins in cash for charity
7:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in News
A LANDLORD with a talent for woodcarving is grateful to his customers for donations to a worthy cause through one of his pieces.
Trevor Salway-Roberts, of the Green Dragon in Combe St Nicholas, created a life-sized carving of a woman with a glass-fronted money box, into which people can drop donations for the Samaritans.
He said: “I started this about ten years ago when a local resident told me he was a Samaritan, and it’s been going ever since.
"Our customers have been really generous, with £5 and even £10 notes being dropped in.”
