Raising money - Xmas Boxes For the Troops & the Poppy Appeal

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by MrsCheeks, Aug 29, 2007.

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. The Yellow Ribbon Foundation is once again fielding a team at Hyde Park for The Hydro Active Women's 5km Challenge on Sunday 16th September 2007.

    Team "The Force Behind the Forces" consists of wives, mothers and sisters of members of the British Armed Forces, and represent the tri-service community raising money for The Yellow Ribbon Foundation - a registered non-profit organisation providing a support and information facility to the British Forces and their families - and their chosen charity for 2007/2008, uk4u Thanks!

    The second event that Team "The Force Behind the Forces" will be participating in is by men only. The Great South Run in Portsmouth on Sunday 28th October is a 10 mile run which will be the first event undertaken by The YRF specifically raising money for the Poppy Appeal.

    Our team for this event are all serving members of the Air Force - not just the RAF either, but the USAF as well! The team, all from the tri-service section of JADTEU at RAF Brize Norton, have been training long and hard for this event in locations all across the globe - from here in Oxfordshire to the sandier climes of Afghanistan, slotting training in wherever they can amongst their everyday operational duties in the Armed Forces.

    You can sponsor either or both of the Teams through our dedicated PayPal donation facility on The YRF website at www.yellowribbon.org.uk.

    For the Poppy Appeal event only you can also donate through our JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/YellowRibbonFoundation

    The Yellow Ribbon Foundation is incorporated and registered in England and Wales as a non-profit Private Limited Company. Registered Company No. 5372850. Data Registration No. Z9549357.
