Newspaper cutting, probably from The Catholic Herald (c1968-9):

"Two White Fathers, Fr John Conlon and Fr Joseph Brankin (Superior), of Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire, sort out the 138,000 cigarette coupons they have collected to obtain a second Mini-Moke for their African missions. They started collecting last September when 50,000 coupons were left over from their first mini-moke, which is now being used in Tanzania, east Africa.

Another 52, 000 coupons and the White Fathers will be able to send the secon vehicle to Zambia, central Africa.
"

In front : Fr Mike Ryan, driver, and Fr Joe Brankin (Superior)

Newspaper cutting (1969):

"The White Fathers of 129 Lichfield Road, Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire have now received their second Mini-Moke with 195,000 cigarette coupons sent to them by people from all over the country. The Catholic Herald reported that the missionary order wanted more coupons. Now, thanks to its readers, the vehicle will be shipped to Northern Zambia for missionary work.

The first vehicle is now in use in Tanzania.

The White Fathers have already 10,000 coupons towards their next Mini-Moke. But it is a race against time because it is feared that the cigarette company will withdraw it from their catalogue."

This Mini-Moke was obtained with 200,000 cigarette coupons, now in use in Western Tanzania

(The extra 5000 coupons was probably needed to install a cigarette lighter)
