    Following the suggestions and discussions from the following threads:

    http://clio197.net/threads/nominated-forum-charity.56215/

    http://clio197.net/threads/are-we-going-to-do-what-we-said.57142/

    It has been decided that we would like to have a nominated Forum Charity. The reasons for which, and ways in which we can raise money, are covered in the first thread linked above. In a nutshell: we would like to make use of the gathering of our members at meets, drives out and events etc to help raise money for a cause that we all feel would benefit.

    What we propose, is to nominate one charity each year that will receive the proceeds from our fund-raising endeavours. It is always hard to choose just one, as they are all arguably as worthy as the next, however following the above threads, we have this year narrowed it down to two - the choices you see in the poll above - Cancer Hospice and Air Ambulance.

    We feel that this is very important, and has the potential to be something incredibly positive, so we would very much appreciate it if you could take the time to cast your vote in the poll above. The poll will be open for one month, after which we will make a formal announcement of the chosen charity.

    Thank you very much for your time.

    I will be doing a daily bump for this, as we really want to get as many votes as possible! It's an important subject, so we would be very grateful if you could take the time to vote for your choice of charity.

    Thank you very much!


    EDIT: discussion, ideas, suggestions and thoughts are also welcome - keep the thread at the top! :smile:

    So proud to be a member of this forum as always. Both worthy causes. Made my vote.

    To gain maximum exposure, I'm wondering if it's possible from the control panel to send a PM to all members alerting them to this thread?

    Weirdly it asks me to log into the forum when I click on the link, even though I'm always logged in each day. Just thought I'd share that boring little nugget of information with you!

    Yeah I get that a lot when clicking on links to other pages of the forum :think: I always presumed it was because it was opening another tab and so 'forgot' you were logged in... Annoying either way! Thanks for the head up dude!

    Thank you so much to everyone that voted for their choice of 'Official Forum Charity 2017/18'.

    We are very pleased to announce that the forum will be supporting a Cancer Hospice for the next 12 months. I'm sure that we can all feel very proud that we'll be able to contribute in our own unique way to helping people in some of the darkest times of their lives.

    Please keep an eye out for further details of the arrangements we will make in order for everyone to be able to make their donations to the charity over the year.

    Thank you again for everyone's time and efforts with this and we look forward to keeping you up to date with the progression of this project.

    Glad it was cancer that got the vote, I lost my nan, dad and aunty last year and it's a vile thing that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
