Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by fairmaidofperth, Feb 2, 2009.

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:

  1. I know there are loads of worthy causes out there and so many of you already give generously but please please please help me make my target for this truly wonderful charity.


    If anyone wants to come and cheer on a very old lady puffing her way round London I'd really appreciate the support on the big day itself!

    Thanks guys,

  4. big fat bump
  5. and another bump, every little helps ..........
  6. How's your training going? I'm struggling to get motivated this year. Weather hasn't helped any!
  7. JD, bit like yourself, slower start to the training this year. Running on snow and ice hasn't helped either. Nor have the various social events such as the Six Nations and celebrating the big 5-0! That in itself is slowing me down!

    Anyway you don't need to worry, you'll zip round, I'm just going for a steady plod :)
  8. huge bump

    to those of you who have already donated, many thanks

    still a long way to go so keep the donations coming in, every little helps

    who knows, you might be ringing Combat Stress one day :)
  9. another bump for pay day
  10. another bump to keep this on the front page
  11. How is the training going.
  12. Did a 21 miler Friday night, feet hurting a bit today! Couple more long runs left then on to the carb loading. It's hard work fitting training in round work and 3 children but all for a good cause which keeps me going on long midnight runs! Getting a London charity place is the best 50th birthday present ever and going to enjoy it despite the pain!

    So please guys chuck some cash my way, Combat Stress need your help, and I need the encouragement. Thanks to those who've already sponsored me.

  13. yet another bump to keep this on the front page

    C'mon guys, Combat Stress really need your donations. It could be you calling them up in a few years.
