CHURCH TO BUY LAWN MOWER WITH CIGARETTE COUPONS:
ST CUTHBERT’S Scottish Episcopal Church intends to buy a new lawn mower – with cigarette coupons.
Over 9000 coupons have already been saved, but Mrs Pamela Robertson, wife of the Rev. Edward Robertson, needs another 6000 before she can send for the mower.
Can you picture poor Pamela and the rest of the MU sitting at the back of church puffing away frantically whilst counting their coupons?
