Tripe Makes A Comeback

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle yesterday welcomed sales figures for the TMB's 2014 Diary as an indication that tripe is making a comeback.

Speaking at a gala dinner hosted by the Pemberton Ladies' Circle last night, Sir Norman said: "I'm extremely encouraged that we managed to sell over 150 copies of a diary that has hitherto only been available within the tripe industry.   When we decided to publish our diary more widely, there were some in the offal industry - and they know who they are - who said we were mad.  But the figures speak for themselves."

Sir Norman announced that the TMB would be donating all of its income from the sale of the diary to the Snowdon Trust, and that he would be sending a cheque for £200 to the trust this week. "Snowdon is a fantastic organisation that assists physically and sensory disabled people to access vocational and academic courses in the UK by awarding grants. and we are pleased to be able to support its work in this small way," he said.

The TMB 2014 Diary is still available for sale  and is also available on Kindle for people who don't like books or who don't like to pay more than £1.33 for a diary.

Sir Norman expressed his thanks to Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson and the Reverend Richard Coles for contributing recipes to the diary and thanked everyone who had purchased one or helped to promote it, including cricket commentators David 'Bumble' Lloyd and Mike Atherton.  "There's no doubt that the diary will play a key role in our campaign to make 2015 the Year of Tripe," he said.
