[2008 RBL Lot 31] Vast KathyWest Gift Set for Afghanistan

#1
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.



Kathy West is the UK's No1 Professional Uniform Model and a very long term supporter of this site. She has supported the ARRSE RBL Poppy Appeal auctions every single year that they have been run and this year is no exception.

Kathy has very kindly donated two bumper packs of her material for auction on the understanding that one will be sent to a unit in Iraq and another to a unit in Afghanistan. The winner of the auction can choose which lucky unit will receive the pack consisting of:

5 x 2009 Calendars
5 x 2008 Calendars
5 x 2007 Calendars

50 x WPC / Schoolgirl flyers
50 x JAG US Navy / Girl Scout flyers
50 x Royal Navy flyers

5 x Giant size Nurse Special Posters
5 x Giant size Gymslip Schoolgirl Posters
5 x Giant Size Law Enforcement Posters

Personalized Christmas card each to officers and soldiers

The total cost of this would be in the region of £380 if bought from her fan club so this is an extremely generous offer and one that will significantly brighten up a lot of operational tours!

Please note that the auction will run until 2200 on 10 Nov.

And while I'm here have the COs sorted out the payment procedure this year? Last year there were problems with people's real identities being shown.

Thanks to the two of you for getting stuck in with this

We are using bmycharity which is anonymous if you choose to make it so.

BTW don't forget we also have a similar set of Kathy goodies available for dispatch to Iraq......
Without sounding thick (which is exactly how it will probably sound) and of course giving this a bump especially for the Iraq lot which is a lot cheaper than this one.

If its anonymous how will you know that we paid.
