NEARLY 3000 tubes of Smarties have been delivered to council offices to raise money for charity.

Nestle delivered 2,800 boxes of the colourful sweets to Bromley Civic Centre on Monday, and they will now be handed out to employees who will start collecting money.

It is the idea of the new Mayor of Bromley, George Taylor, who wants all of the council employees to eat the sweets and then fill the empty tubes with 27 pound coins.

A spokesperson for the Mayor said: "All the money raised will be going to the Mayor's Charity Appeal, supporting the Prince's Trust.

"Staff have always traditionally supported the mayor's charities and this year the mayor has made that even more fun."

The Mayor hopes to raise £30,000 for his nominated charity.
