Get Mooch back in an RS charity. www.justfilching.com





Tend to agree that while H4H is a fantastic charity and those boys and girls need help and support ( I have a mate who has recently returned from Solihull and has real bad PTSD) I do feel that they get great support and financial donations- never enough mind, but apart from that the governement should do more for them.
I think a smaller charity would benefit more, a smaller more personal charity, a charity that we as SRS's can make the most difference to. £2000 to H4H would be apptreciated, £2k to the precious lives appeal or Grants Daughter would be life changing.
Which one gets my vote? both of em. Lets raise £4k.

A past colleague of mine did this for his daughter late last year. The amount raised was in excess of 35K IIRC. A very expensive operation and significant post op recovery and physiotherapy.

I am very much for Help the Heros but I think there would be something special about helping out a young person related to a member on here. Good luck Grant and all the best for your daughter.


My sentiments also.

Fair play Danny. I raised over £2k last year for MIND. I did the three peaks in 24 hours

It was the tuffest thing I have ever done. Torrential rain all weekend, broke my ribs and one finger coming down Scafel Pike at 2AM

When I say "I'm with Mooch on this one" I mean his 2nd option...

I like endurance tests
Been in the gym a fair bit starting to get back into it, problem is that the puddings are outrageously good here.

Is it possible to stick a couple of fights on to raise money?

It's a possibility I could run something along the lines of an abseil to help out, just need to look into the insurance side of things.

I too am with Mooch on this one.

Let's raise as much money as possible. But if we don't reach our desired amount, £2k goes to the smaller charity and anything above the £2k goes to HTH.

Grant's daughter's appeal gets my vote, and would be great to support.

This has a direct connection to a forum member.
