    We lost ours last year, but not this year. This year, it was chained to the counter.
  4. Whilst service/ex-service personel find robbing a Poppy Tin beyond the pale its still just a box full of money sitting invitingly on handy to reach counters, what do people expect?
  5. Poppy tins are there for a relatively short period of time so they tend to fill up quickly, thieves will be aware of this and prefer them to a tin that's been there all year and may not have that much in it.
    The only time that a common thief will worry about what he's doing is if he's in front of the judge when his solicitor will tell everyone how filled with remorse he is, how his life is devastated by the enormity of his crime and can he have community service please as he knows he can slack off that.
  6. We should fit a central core of PE4 in to the boxes. When it is realised to have been stolen, phone up the pager in the bottom and detonate the box.

    The theiving scum can keep the change..... embedded in their bodies.
  7. I like your thinking there CF
  8. People need to learn to strap the collection boxes down - the one I contributed to was attached to a computer terminal... on the counter in the main Admin Office in HQ.

    Can't trust anyone nowadays.
  9. We expect to be able to contribute to a very worthwhile cause without some scrote having it away on his toes with it, not much to ask.

    Its not really much of a surprise in a country with an ever increasing popluation of cnuts is it? They will soon outnumber those with a learned sense of respect for others, common courtesy, decency and moral values.
