What is your preferred charity?

Post by PESCA » 05 Jan 2014, 15:47

Okay fellas, here's the story.

We've been contacted by several members who would like to donate items to the forum, which we could we can either give away as free raffle prizes, or sell and use the money toward the running of the forum.

Regarding the running of the forum, Geoff and I cover these forum costs from the advertisements you see, so that doesn't come into the equation.

Now, instead of giving away free raffle prizes, as we've done in the past, we feel that it would be nice to raffle, sell, or auction the said items and the money go to a chosen charity.

Having given this some thought, we feel that two worthy charities would be Help For Heroes and Cancer research UK. We hope that you would agree with us.

What we would like to do is to adopt a charity, so that any monies raised in the future, will always go to that chosen charity.

We don't want you to put your reasons on this public forum, as this could get controversial, but we would like you to take part in a vote, rather than the charity be chosen by ourselves.

We'll run the poll for about two weeks, which should give everyone a fair chance to vote.

Thanks for taking the time.
Admin.

May I be so bold, help for heroes only help serving personnel. The royal British Legion help all. Once pensioned off etc through injury help for heroes no longer help.


This is something I only found out through the rbl shoot held by the high power rifle association.

Thanks for that. I never realised that either.

To be honest, we simply chose the two charities we've mentioned as they're probably the two most talked about ones out there.

We know that there are many more worthwhile charities, but we would always be in danger of missing out someones favourite, so we narrowed it down to two.

Cheers.

Just a point. Obviously, if neither of these are your preferred choice, you can, of course, simply abstain from voting. We can't tell you to vote for something you don't believe in 8-)

Well I would have to abstain for numerous reasons that I won't bore everybody with.

I should also have mentioned that I will also be happy with whatever the result is and will support whatever charity the forum goes with. :D
