    Hi Everyone http://terrybnd.blogspot.com/2010/03...walk.html#more

    or

    http://www.justgiving.com/terrybnd

    You can read more details as to why we're undertaking this event via my blog.

    Thanks for looking and taking the time to read this thread.

    It's not spam....LOL.....I've been a member of OM for a couple of years minimum but I have to admit not a prolific poster.

    Eitherway, I mean all of the above (including the blog) and hope to see some of your support and maybe even a drink or two if you like at the Tan Hill Inn on Sunday 2nd May....at about 3pm if the legs can make it.

    Cheers!

    Enjoy your walk Terry. I've never ventured down to the lowlands.

    I always stick a pound in the MRT tin on the bar after a walk. Seemingly there are hundreds of thousands of us taking to the hills each year. If the 'average' person gets out only once a month, that's a possible £12 in the tin. Multiply by 200,000 and it could be a fair sum. How many folk drive to the hills and back without contributing?

    Mike, last time I was up with SARDA Wales in Snowdonia, I asked them about contributions from people rescued by the MR teams up there. A fiver from a group taken off the mountain after dark in winter conditions seems to be normal. Nothing is sometimes the contribution.

    A couple of week ago i questioned why Go Outdoors don't have a mrt collection box, didn't get a good answer, i've had excellent customer service from them when needed but i'd like to be able to contribute each time i go in there.

    Decathlon on the other hand do have one so i buy from there when i can and only use GO if i absolutley have to.

    Twiglegs, it may be Go Outdoors, or it may be down to the local MRT; when Go Outdoors opened in Cardiff last year, our Secretary zipped down there with a load of SARDA South Wales collection boxes. But SARA (Severn Area Rescue Association) had got in there first, and unlike Cotswolds, who have a box from all the local MR groups, Go Outdoors would only take collection boxes from one. It may just be that the local team hasn't been down there with their boxes.

    Thanks Kate.

    There are no collection boxes of anyones in there so it may be down to GO, i've just e-mailed Edale mrt for clarification.

    Good points about donations.

    I tend to chuck some coinage in any tins I come across.

    Well, I've raised abit so far so thanks to those who have!

    I nipped over to meet up with Rab on Friday and got some goodies from them to raise funds for MRT.

    Of which I'll submit a thread soon

    Hopefully that'll raise a bit more money, too

    Anyone want a bargain and raise funds for MRT at the same time?
