ABF The soldiers' charity Wenches in Trenches

#1
I run the cornwall office of the above charity and this year I am the project director of a sponsored walk along the old British front line of 1916 on the Somme France. I have 70 ladies doing the walk all raising a minimum of £500 each for this amazing charity. The girls will be camping out and roughing it for a few days.. I also have the new forces sweetheart Miss cookie Monstar (drag artiste) performing in the camp in the evening. We are now being supported by the Daily Express newspaper and several large companies. Triple amputee Cpl andy reid is coming out on the last day to lay the wreath at the Thiepval memorial to the missing. we should raise bucketfuls with this walk. There are no places left for this year but I am taking names for next years walk.

Thank you for bumping this up, we leave this thursday to do the walk things have changed the army is no longer involved but we have raised around £25,000 for ABF the soldiers charity with more to come. We are all very excited. I finally got the dog tags free of charge from a wonderful company up in tadcaster yorkshire and my local cobbler stamped them for me. P&O ferries gave us £3,000 worth of travel free and euro tunnel is taking my 3 injured soldiers over free of charge. We have neen so well supported by some people from this forum as well so Thank you guys very very much

I've thought of a completely different fund raising idea with 'Wenches' and 'Trenches' in the title...

So I couldn't do 'Trenches dug by Wenches'.

A group of women dig a trench and live in it for a few weeks. In a 'I'm a celebrity' stylee. A Green Goddess would liberally hose the place down to turn in to a true depiction.

Cracking event, bit nippy overnight in the tents on the first night (-7 apparently), but the scoff laid on by the lads and lasses in the field kitchen was superb. :)
