Cohen’s Chemist in Stacksteads carried on the good work started at Bacup and Stacksteads Carnival with Stacksteads Countryside Park Group by holding a competition to guess the number of sweets in the jar.
Their target for the event was 400 pounds, and the poor weather at the start of the day meant the takings fell a little short of this amount – so Cohen’s decided to accept the challenge and raise the difference in their shop. Bob Hoey won the jar by correctly guessing 383 sweets, and declared he’d share the prize with his grandchildren
