She is doing her bit - can you help?

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. As its evening now and most Arrsers are at home...
  2. And yes the Avatar is her
  3. Shameless bump for the night shifters
  4. Another bump
  5. You know where my money goes to.
  6. I waited a few days before replying to this- chances are that anyone going to sponsor will have done so by now so whatever I say is not going to make any difference.

    As someone who was quite involved with Crisis at Christmas in the early years, I was suprised to learn that people are being sponsored, merely to volunteer.

    It's of no matter that I find it a bit odd; giving volunteering to help the disadvantaged, the same status as say, sponsorship for cycling down Mt Kilimanjaro or whatever.

    But I think it's worth making the point that that volunteers don't have to be sponsored, in fact the vast majority aren't.

    So if anyone wants to give their time at Christmas, you could do a lot worse than volunteering for Crisis (as it is now known)

    If you're not local, no matter-all you need is a sleeping bag.

    Not only a chance to make a difference for those more unfortunate, you'll meet some interesting people,both among the homeless and the volunteers, and come away with different views on the situation amongst the Single Homeless.

    [and if walt-hunting floats your boat, you'll have a field day amongst those on the streets claiming to be ex-service! :):)]
