Some years ago the DSWA negotiated a scheme with Yorkshire Tea whereby collecting their tokens gave the DSWA 25p per token and in this way over £1000 has been raised.

Originally we collected tea tokens but the system has been changed and we now have our own collection system, being the bar codes from the bottom of the boxes. A special sheet is available for these to be stuck on to as they are collected, a copy of which can be downloaded here. Your completed sheets should be sent to the office. Alternatively, you can continue to send individual bar codes to the office without having to wait until you have a completed card. We have collecting sheets here.

Please encourage your friends and family to help with the collecting as it is a very useful source of funds for the Association. If you still have any of the old style tokens, please send them to the office as soon as possibly so that we do not lose out now the system has changed. 

Keep drinking that tea!
