WE need more ARRSE support

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by hitback, Jan 8, 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. Get off your arrse in the new year and support our young and older service personnel who need social housing when they leave the service. The current legislation discriminates against service personnel and puts them at a distinct disadvantage when competing with civilians. An early day motion is currently being signed by MPs which if carried, will help change this legislation, but we need more of them to sign it if we are to get the government to take notice. We now need your support to get this through. Go to http://www.parliament.uk/directories/hciolists/alms.cfm to find your MP and then Email your MP asking for support for this EDM. Come on ARRSERS, get of your arrse and give us some support!.

    If you wish, you could always take this simple letter and copy and paste it to your MP via the link. Don't forget to place their name and yours in the pasted letter.

    Dear *******

    The following EDM 288 has been tabled in the House of Commons. I believe our armed forces should be given all the support they require for their civilian transition, and housing is a fundamental requirement. I hope you will show your support by signing EDM 288.

    Yours sincerely

  2. Totally Agree!

    Also there are still unsold Arrse Mr P. Lapel pins. Remember all proceeds are going to the ABF

    Come on Arrsers, The Brylcream Boys over at the e-goat have nearly bought all there lapel pins that were produced with proceeds going to the RAFBF.

    Get yours now, there is no excuse, there are 22940 Arrse members at present, they should have been sold out by now. Donate to a worthwhile cause.

    They can be found in this section.

We now need your support to get this through. Go to http://www.parliament.uk/directories/hciolists/alms.cfm to find your MP and then Email your MP asking for support for this EDM. Come on ARRSERS, get of your arrse and give us some support!. It only takes a minute to do but could help so many comrades and their families in the future.
