    Tesco Voucher Collection

    I thought it was time to have the annual conversation about Tesco vouchers. Are we to open a book on how DHL will cope with collection from the thousands of schools taking part?

    Or is nobody else but me responsible for such things?

    I haven't received any bags yet and my collection day is 26th not that I've finished counting them yet.

    On a different note, we saved days this year by borrowing some .00 accuracy scales from Biology and weighing the vouchers to count them

    The janitor at one of the primary schools I look after was sitting in his room counting them a couple of weeks ago.

    The school is quite a small one, maybe 150 kids at the most and he had counted so far well over 40,000 vouchers.

    We've had parents coming in with thick wads of them. Seems the checkout people are getting rid of them.

    Yep, we had five complete books from somebody - not even a parent I don't think (not here, anyway).

    I don't have the letter to hand anymore - its on my desk at work. But I think the deadline for DHL collections have now passed. You need to organise postage yourself now if you want to get them sent off before this years deadline.

    I counted 18,000 using scales last week thinking we were done. Since then I've counted an additional 2,000 by hand and still more are coming in! I'm getting sick of the sight of the bloody things.

    Looking forward to the 25th when DHL are due.

    We're getting a Digital Camera and a Camcorder this year, plus a few bits for food tech.

    How many people actually advertised you're collecting vouchers? I sent a letter home to parents at the start and then nothing and we have over 20,000 vouchers. The school's not on the best location for putting up that big banner they sent at the start.

    Counted, bagged, order form completed and ready for collection. So efficient of me.

    (And my colleagues!)
