Christmas Auctions - asking for items ... again

Discussion in 'Charity Auctions' started by YesItsMe, Nov 21, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I know it's only a few weeks ago when I was asking you all to have a look for items for the Combined Auctions
    for the benefit of the RBL Poppy Appeal and Holidays4Heroes.
    And it might be overconfident to ask for even more items now.

    But those of you who are around for a couple of years will know that we always had some sort of
    'All Be Over By Christmas' Auction Campaign.
    These auctions are held primarily to make sure that those who have just gone through the most horrible time in their lives anyway
    will have at least a chance to celebrate Christmas.

    The money we can raise in these auctions will help us to provide contributions to servicemen and ex servicemen
    who are simply unable to provide for themselves or their families.

    And it has become some sort of tradition to give vouchers for toys to all our children.
    These children had to cope with substantial changes in theirs lives
    and we can only try to brighten up their day just a little bit for a moment.
    But at least they will know the rest of the world hasn't forgotten about them.

    Therefore we are begging for items that we can auction !

    Clearly the more valuable or interesting the better but if you've got something that you think will raise money
    then please contact me on with the details.
    We'd also ask that anyone donating an item be prepared to send it directly to the winning bidder.

    Let me quote Hols4Heroes words from last year

    And please bid on the items to help !

    The auctions will start on Monday the 28th of November and all will end on Thursday the 8th of December 16:00 hrs UK time.
    So if you want to use any item as a Christmas gift, it should be with you well in time.

    Thank you all for your support !!

  3. Tried your linky but computah sez no.

    I have 12 Chieftain tanks, brand new, and a few "previously enjoyed" 432's.

    Patently not real, as the postage would be a bit steep.

    The Chieftains are plastic toys, about HO/OO scale
    The 432's are old Airfix plastic ready-built toys

    I'll chuck in a landrover in the same scale.

    So, a BAOR era tank squadron, Just tell me where to post it?

    Vintage toy tin tank. A similar one is up on eBay now for £45.

    Not really suitable for a kid since it is vintage, and its made of tin. The friction motor works a treat. Make a good 'ironic' present for a Tankie or anyone who collects tin toys. Here it is. It is in better nick than the eBay one.
