Yes,,,great idea..I've seen it done somewhere else...it gives a target to finish the 'picture' by the end of the day...

Brilliant idea. Maybe we could have a big drawing of a dog and ask people to donate a £1 for a poundie instead of a penny x

I like that idea, how big would it need to be.  I probably could sort out something A1 size or does it need to be bigger?

There are some outline sketches here which could be printed out onto A4 and then enlarged to A1  :)

I guess it would work best if people could use any coins, perhaps to get a good pleasing picture you could do a heart in the middle that is for £1s and then other coins elsewhere?
