 Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater, says that until last week it was happening, on average, 12 times a day. Tourists would wander past his, most excellent, Wedge Issue pizza joint on the Clerkenwell Road and just walk in asking if they could use its loos for free. Of course cleaning the bogs, providing loo paper etc means such a service is a cost for Darren with no revenue associated. So he put sign below up, with a jar with some coins in it behind....

Surely a few coppers to a great charity like Woodlarls in return for using the loos is not too much to ask? Apparently it is. Most tourists apparently see the sign and now walk on. Tight fisted bastards. 

I am sure you are not as mean as the tourist vermin are you? Tomorrow i will walk 33 miles in the burning heat across Surrey to raise money for Woodlarks. We have already raised almost £24,000. Our target is £25,000.
