Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by MODBloke, Jan 7, 2008.

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 charity uk4u ( has asked that I trawl ARRSELAND for comment on the 2007 Christmas Box.

    Having seen some of the BBC footage from Afghanistan the boxes clearly featured as did the Santa hats.

    Any comments both good and not so good would be useful so that the charity can incorporate improvements in the 2008 box.

  2. Just bumping this one up. The trustees really do appreciate comment on the boxes, and given the amount of work they put in to make this project a success it would be good to be able to give them something to hang their hats on.

    For those of you who returned the prize draw ticket, the draw will take place in the MoD this Thursday.
  3. The Christmas Box draw took place yesterday at the MoD. Results were:

    First Prize: Tom Tom XL Europe won by an Able Seaman on HMS Vigilant

    Second Prize: 1 gigabyte Video wristwatch won by a subaltern in 39 Regt RA

    Third Prize: Portable DVD player won a WO2 in 170 (Infra Sp) Engr Gp RE

    Why have you made all the winners annonymous except one. :?

    Agree about the Tom Tom. :)
  5. Blast - oversight. Not on OPSEC grounds since the names will be published in Solidier and other Defence Magazines - I didn't want to pre-empt the surprise of being told by the Charity.
