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. Hey,

    I am looking at doing a charity rally and the regulations state that I can donate upto 50% of my raised money to a Registered Children's Charity in my local community.

    1st Question:- Are there any Registered Children's Charities in the Forces community?

    2nd Question:- Trying to keep my sponsors "Army" Orientated i.e. NAAFI etc, are there any big players in the Forces community that might be willing to sponsor?

    Failing 2nd Q are there any big names linked to the Forces community that would sponsor? i.e. sporting names or vehicle manufacturers.

    Any ideas?


  2. A lot of the Forces Car Sale companies; Volvo, etc do sponsorship. Try and speak to the local reps rather than the head office. Don't forget to do GIFT AID - whereby the Charity you give the money to can claim 28p from every pound from the taxman, all it takes is a sponsorship form with the address of the person who gives you the money and a signature. The person must be paying Income Tax.

    Try local businesses that benefit from Service Personnel/families money - makes em feel guilty (sometimes).

    Good Luck.
  3. Thanks,

    I'll try the local Car manufacturers next week, I'll pop in and see them rather than phone or e-mail.
