    The 11th November is rapidly approaching again and we thought it may be time to use the sight to generate some cash for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. To this end we've approached a number of the site Sponsors to donate items which we'll auction off. All money raised will be going directly to the appeal.

    Auction rules:

    1. Closing time is 11:11 hrs 11th November unless specified otherwise.

    2. Bidding is either by posting on the individual thread for each auction or emailing if you are shy. Bids received by email will be put on the board by me.

    3. Payment is witin 24hrs of the auction closing and can be done via paypal or bank transfer. Failure to pay means that the second highest bidder gets it.

    4. Anyone who wishes to contribute additional auction items to contact

    Happy bidding!
  2. i'll buy anything, me!!

  6. Gentlemen.....I live in Widnes,Cheshire.....not my fault i know.

    But Widnes has fast come a very popular shopping town,with its free parking and ever growing its vast number of popular shops and walkways.

    I have already purchased my poppy but i was in town for two hours and NOT ONE shop or seller was to be seen.I was amazed at this.

    I will not let this happen again as i will volunter my services next year.
