A north Norfolk charity is appealing for help to trace all its collecting tins.

The Seal and Bird Rescue Trust, in Ridlington, near North Walsham, has undergone some upheaval since the death of its driving force, Bev Cossé, in December 2013.

And in the process the charity's database, listing locations of its collecting tins, has been lost, according to trustee Daniel Goldsmith.

He is anxious to restore order and ensure the tins are all accounted for.

Mr Goldsmith said the tins were normally green or blue and should bear the trust's Charity Commission number, 1000313. He believes there may be some in the Aylsham area, possibly Cromer, and elsewhere in north Norfolk.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of a tin is asked to contact Mr Goldsmith on 01493 717131 or 07881 826811.

The trust has been operating for more than 20 years. In the past it has cared for injured and rescued wildlife but at present it just has charge of a dozen captive birds of prey.
