Mr Crotty’s Big Day Out

Brief – What would you do if you had just £5?

WINNER of £5 Challenge 2011

“However, the absolute superstar of the competiton was Andrea Bowie’s Mr Crotty’s Big Day Out (see video above). She says: “If I had just £5 I would trawl the internet for free items, buy a bus-pass and then set off to claim my treasures. I have enlisted my friend Mr Crotty to show you just how far £5 can go …”

We’re not sure the idea of Freecycle is to get free stuff you can then sell, but the video is fantastic, funny and we loved the starring role given to the people donating items to Mr Crotty.” Jill Insley, The Gaurdian
