Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Devon_Walker, Jun 24, 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:

  1. Hi lads and lasses. With permission, may we just mention another sponsored walk please, this time it's an effort for Help for Heroes. A sponsored walk is planned for October 08 to October 16, 2010. Distance 150 miles unsupported along the North Devon Coastal path past Minehead in Somerset and then back to Barnstaple. Incidentally I'll be getting wed to my fiancee at the end of it :D

    Sparkles 150 Help for Heroes

    Any support and donations welcomed. Many thanks. If I may, I'll keep this updated. Many thanks.

  2. Further to this, the first donation has been made on the Bmycharity page. No commission is taken from the donations (allegedly) and Gift Aid bumps up the figures.

    Incidentally, anyone who's around, along the route from Barnstaple through to Minehead and Watchet and back, along the coastal path route, would be most welcome from 08 October through to 16 October 2010.

    Paul's also looking for a loan of a Mess Dress (Rifles). A request from the fiancee, but without medals. Arrse's fine and supportive community are welcome to be involved with ideas, encouragement and support. Paul's also ex-Forces, receiving a war pension and is committed to HELP for HEROES and the valuable work it does for our armed forces.

    Thank you and sorry to intrude on your Sunday evening

    November's effort: Paul's long trek raises funds for Poppy Appeal

    We'd like to raise loads of money for H4H.

    Thanks
     
  4. Good afternoon all. With permission may we please add updates for the event on 08 - 16 October 2010 . Thanks to those who've offered any assistance so far :) Our "walker" Paul, is a veteran of 16 years Army service, and appears to manage well considering he's labelled 40% war disabled and frankly, he's always cheerful, upbeat, otherwise fit and an inspiration!! Paul's walking route will go from Barnstaple, North Devon EX32 on 08 October 2010 and on to the North Devon Coastal Path over seven days via Braunton, Croyde, Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynmouth, Porlock Weir, Minehead, finishing at Watchet (Somerset). After a short break, the return journey's along the same route in reverse. He'll have a pedometer to count the miles.

    Paul will be training on Exmoor each Sunday until the walk starts on 08 October 2010.

    As this effort is largely a lone effort by Paul, with just a mobile phone and his own kit, any support along the route would be very much appreciated. If you'd like to offer any:
    Encouragement, accommodation, or even loans of kit/supplies/rations...please contact us at :
    email pharrismobile@gmail.com .

    At the end of the Walk, Paul's marrying Lesley in Barnstaple Registry Office on 16 October.

    Thank you :)
