  2. Good Luck Steve with this epic walk, hopefully the ARRSE MODs will put your Charity Event as a sticky in the Charities Page, you should get yourself a donation page to make it easier, here is an excellent one:

    The Lemon Squeazy way to create a Fun Fund Raising Page

    Hope that helps, its very easy and would be ideal probably?!
  3. Hi Gandulph,

    Thanks for the support and link.

    I received a message from the Mods, they will be making my post a sticky.

    Keep the support coming and pass on to anyone you know.

    Regards & thanks

  6. Good luck mate with both the walk and your treatment.

    Have you posted this on any other military site's?

  7. Hi Sluice dweller,

    Ta 4 support mate. I've put it on Forces reunited but had my nuts chewed off by the mods coz I put it in every forum. I was then asked why I put it in the RAF Searching forum. Appears that certain people on FR couldn't understand that someone looking in "Searching For RAF Friends" may not look in the Army section. So there was a bit of a falling out with the mods on FR who have threatened to delete my post if I don't put it in the category they stipulate. So much for freedom of speech eh.

    Should have taken Rosie's advice at the Combat Stress Fundraising Dept and come here first. Now that I have I'm so glad I took her advice as I've had more support here in the first 24hr period than I got in over five weeks on FR.

    As yet not put it on other sites, have got a few lined up but need as much help as poss with a wide variety of sites. Any ideas most welcome.

  8. Have you tried contacting soldier?
  9. Hi Goku,

    Yes I have mate. But before I can go ahead with the major fundraising and media campaign I have to wait and see how my proposal goes with the trustees of Combat Stress. Am hoping to hear from them in the very near future.
