Dean’s launched an appeal back in May this year to help find one of each of our four commemorative tins specially produced for the Millennium.  We were delighted to announce that we managed to locate the tins and recently we posted a picture of the four winners at the factory receiving their prize (Read winners blog post here).

We were overwhelmed with the tremendous response to the appeal from the general public, we are equally pleased with the fantastic assistance we got from the local papers.  Pictured below are cuttings from the Huntly Express, Evening Express and Turriff Advertiser all of which were kind enough to run the story about our search for these important tins.

The commemorative tins play an important role in the history of the company and indeed the town of Huntly; as we reported in our blog post in March, the tins reminded a wealthy benefactor of his early days growing up in Huntly which led him to leave a £250,000+ bequest to the Gordons Schools in Huntly (Read the full story here).

Thank you to everybody who took part in the search, the four tins will be on display in the Dean’s factory very soon.
