Hols for Heroes - Notice of Grand Auction of Wedding Finery

Discussion in 'Charity Auctions' started by Grownup_Rafbrat, Jun 18, 2010.

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:

    All, Thanks to some fantastic blagging by arrsers and their supporters, the auction team has a range of lots which will be suitable for a wedding. For example a family photo session, a cake, a frock, a hair/makeup session, and other lovely items.

    We'll be auctioning them all together during July.

    So if you or someone you know is planning a wedding (no cynics please - its' something everyone should try once!), watch this space for a series of items which will make it go with a swing whilst helping our favourite cause.

    That's a brilliant suggestion, thanks, GB. I'll PM you for details!
  5. Not a problem, is there anything else you need in this area that I may be able to get my sticky mits on?

    Anything you can offer, which someone would buy at auction, would be very very welcome. I'll post a list of what we have already, and see if you can think of anything else!

    You'd have to pay a lot of money to Hols For Heroes for that particular priviledge.
  10. That's not a bad idea, you can get the wedding couple to pay NOT to have DarkNinja turn up, you know sort of protection money! :)
