The Devon Royal British Legion 150

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Devon_Walker, Nov 5, 2009.

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, we've asked Good CO for permission to post this on Arrse, and are grateful for this opportunity.

    There will be a sponsored walk covering 150 miles around Devon, during
    14/11//09 to 20/11/09. The event is sanctioned by the Devon County Office of the Royal British Legion. All proceeds are intended for the Devon County Office of The Royal British Legion, shared with the Veterans' Hostel.

    Why? Devon is one of many areas affected by operations past and present. We hope to raise thousands of pounds and bolster the presence of the RBL in Devon, working directly with those in need.

    Donations, support or pledges would be welcomed by the RBL Devon County Fundraiser. We'll also be collecting along the way.

    Many thanks for reading this.

  2. Further to the Devon County RBL 150 Sponsored Walk thread, the first leg of the journey will visit Dartmouth on Saturday, November 14, 2009 from lunchtime. The local Dartmouth Branch will be in support and wellwishers will be welcomed. A Facebook account has been opened for Devon Walker, with route information. Comments, donations and banter are all welcomed :wink:

    ArmyNET Site Admin have also granted us space to publicise the event under Welfare Issues, User: 2194harri.

    Photos and comments will be added as we go along, many thanks in advance on behalf of Devon County RBL for donations and support.
     
  3. Hi all, looking for some sound advice, wonder if anyone can help. Can anyone recommend a good, low cost MP3 Player, plus a GPS hand held device that will last a good 12 hours? Both will have to stand up to the weather and some heavy use on this walk. Had a look at the E Trex but it seems a bit basic as well as expensive for what it is.

    One week to go....
     
  4. BUMP good mate of mine and worth a punt. He'll manage this as well, top bloke. No apologies for the shameless plug :p

  6. Thanks Mysteron, PM sent :eek:
     
  7. The donation procedure is too complex for me at my late stage of life. If you have a paypal address, I'll fork out for your end-of-walk pint. Maybe two...
