It’s only been four months since Screwfix switched on Pennies but their customers have been donating in their droves rounding up their purchases an amazing 50,000 times.

We thought it would be nice to mark the occasion with a little competition, with thanks to Screwfix for putting up the prize – a 18v DeWalt Combi drill worth £129.99. Simply have a go at the question below to be in with a chance of winning.

Q: Last week Screwfix customers donated £753.49 to charity via Pennies. But how many individual donations did it take to raise this amount?

For a clue, have a look at our press release announcing this milestone where Screwfix's Marketing Director John Mewett highlights the weekly donation average.
