Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    Most ARRSE regulars will be aware that we run an annual charity auction to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Over the years this has gone from strength to strength and last year we managed to raise over £5000 pounds which is an incredible testimony to the generosity of you, our members. I'm sure everyone is aware of the excellent work that they do but, if not, then please have a look at the Royal British Legion website.

    Not content with arranging for this auction item, Spanish Dave has also managed to persuade someone else to donate a week in their apartment as well. This means that two lucky ARRSErs (& their famiies) will spend time in a brand new luxurious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom second floor apartment on La Torre Golf Resort near Murcia with all proceeds going to the RBL.

    The apartment itself is a ground floor plot and has a lounge and separate kitchen and one bathroom with fitted shower,which is finished in outstanding marble. The apartment also has a terrace with BBQ and garden furniture as well as garden space. The apartment also has excellent access for disabled. There is a very large community pool with toddlers splash pool and jacuzzi directly in front of the apartment set amongst landscaped gardens. You look through the pool onto the fantastic Jack Nicklaus golf course. We also have a broadband connection available in the apartment and telephone.


    Please note that the auction will start on 1 Nov and run until 1100 on 11 Nov.

    If you have an item that you wish to donate then please Contact Us

  6. Just to clarify that this is a second floor flat (with lift) two bedrooms with either two double or four single beds rather than a ground floor which is the other apartment and is front line to the golf course. The totally private balcony overlooks the 18th green, across the 10th fairway and with views all the way down to the Mar Menor/Mediterranean which is 15 minutes drive away. The clubhouse, restaurants, bars etc are two minutes walk away. You can view it on www.luxuryspanishapartment.co.uk.

    Right chaps, I hereby declare this auction closed and very many thanks to everyone who contributed. However the winner is Grownup_Rafbrat with a bid of £350.

    Can I ask you to pay via our Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Donations Page on bmycharity. This will ensure that the money goes to the right place and also allows the tax to be reclaimed. Once you've paid, drop us a line using this link (please) letting us know you've paid. I'll then post back in this thread letting Spanish_Dave know that he can send the item to you and you can PM him with your address.

    I never win anything!

    Maybe now I've entered a new decade of my life this has changed.

    I'll sort out all the stuff today and post when done.

    I will not be posting photos of that tan!

    Seriously, thanks to all for arranging this auction and donating prizes. This year I've seen a tiny Cheshire part of the need that RBL is filling, and can't thank you enough for helping to do that.

    Here you go take your pick of the apartments, personally I favour the one in the middle as the sewage runs around it :lol:

    Takes me right back to Aden 1966 - the view from the roof of Hexham House was just like that!

  15. I have just got back from a week at the flat, there were only a few clouds in the sky yesterday afternoon. The whole of the rest of the week was boring old sun! Don't worry about the golf - I don't play but just enjoy watching the golfers cheating! Pools, restaurants, bars and nearby beaches a plenty. Please email me for dates on davidcday@btinternet.co.uk(I have most weeks still available). Promise you it is not like the view in Aden!
