Fenn Street School has raised a surprisingly large amount of money for charity as the result of a sponsored walk. Mr.Cromwell plans to hand it over to a bigwig named Sir Giles at a special ceremony.
Then disaster strikes - the money goes missing from Cromwell's safe.
Being the sort of person he is, Potter immediately suspects a pair of Irish builders currently working on the premises.
In actual fact, the thief is Terry, protesting at being made to walk such a long distance for no reward. But he loses the money too...
Quite a good episode this ( penned by Rowley and Baker ) in which all the cast members are put to good use, even Mr.Hurst. There's a neat twist at the end too. 'Sir Giles' is played by Lockwood West, father of Timothy. Overall it feels like a throwback to the style of earlier seasons, and suggests that the changes were at last starting to work. Pity it happened too late to save the show.
Funniest moment - Miss Petting fainting as the money is discovered to be missing.
