Jersey Hospice Care has received “a surprise donation of £13,000 after it received the sale price of gold, silver and platinum shavings that were found embedded in a jeweller’s old carpet. A competition launched by Aurum Jewellers Jersey last November invited Islanders to estimate the value of the precious metals which had become caught up in its 15-year-old carpet and the person with the closest guess would be asked to choose a local charity to receive the funds from the sale.
