What do £30 of biscuits look like?

At the beginning of the month I took the MoneySupermarket Retail Royalty Challenge for Age UK Canterbury.

I was given £30 to spend on items needed by the charity, which in this case was biscuits! Now, as a lover of biscuits, this was pretty perfect! After much shopping around I managed to amass 35 packets/tins/tubs of biscuits in all shapes and sizes:

£30 of biscuitsI really hope that these biscuits go down well!

*UPDATE* A few days after posting this blog I received a lovely email from Sainsbury’s in Canterbury telling me that they would love to support my collection for Age UK Canterbury and would be sending me a £20 gift card to be given to the manager to spend as she saw fit for the centre! Thank you so much for your support Sainsbury’s!
