govanblue posted a topic in The Bears' DenWhy rent, when you can buy? Original target: £420 Amount raised (so far...) £1362.64 So that will get us a nice little Labrador pup. Cost: £950 And no, we're not calling him William of Orange (Pigeon) - we're calling him Broxi. And little Broxi is gonna need insurance. That's gonna cost £500, plus an extra £100 for Vets fees not covered by the insurance. So yeah, we still need a little bit more in the way of donations - unless you want me to dip in to the Erskine Fund?
govanblue posted a topic in The Bears' DenBRAVEHOUND are in the running for a £50,000 National Lottery Award - but they need votes to win it. Voting ends this weekend. I didn't realise that or I'd have started this thread earlier. But I'm sure there's still time for enough Troops to rally to the cause. So please vote here, now... https://www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk/projects/view/bravehound-taking-the-lead Notice also that the face for this campaign is our very own Erskine Veteran Jimmy, seen here with his BRAVEHOUND companion Bracken, but also often to be seen at Ibrox with his old army mate, enjoying the match courtesy of the RM Erskine Fund members' season ticket scheme. It's a small world, eh? And here's a BBC World Service piece from recently featuring BRAVEHOUND... https://www.glenart.co.uk/projects/bbcworldservice.mp3 Oh, and we'll be sealing the deal on our very own puppy next week. Pictures to follow.
Please read this, then do what your head or heart tells you to. Some of you who follow the Fund threads (extremely) closely may recognise Jimmy as one of the Erskine Bungalow Residents. When he’s not out walking the dog, Jimmy loves nothing more than cheering on the Boys in Blue, and thanks to the RM Erskine Fund, he’s been able to get to quite a few games this season. I’d like to say that we’ve helped Jimmy in his recovery – but given our home performances this season, we may have done more harm than good! But anyway, over the last year, apart from continuing to develop his fledgling Gardening Business, he’s also been doing a lot of Volunteer work for Bravehound. In fact, he’s actually away on Bravehound Service today – helping with the handover of a new puppy to a Veteran. He invited me along to say hi, but as always, I’m working. Anyway, the point is that through getting the right support when he needed it, Jimmy’s now in a position where he’s now the one providing the support, and that’s the kind of results we like. So in order to help Jimmy continue with his efforts, we’ve sent him a couple of tickets for the Hearts game, courtesy of @King's Troop - but more importantly, I’ve also resolved to squeeze a little bit more money for Bravehound out of the Good Folk on RangersMedia. After all - you've got some spare money, and they need it, so to me it's pretty simple. We’re well on our way to our target, but we’ve still got a bit to go (about £250 short I reckon), so we really could do with a few Donations for the Dugs. So if anyone here (who has not already donated!!!) would like to contribute a few pounds to this noble cause, then simply say something here, or send a PM to me or @Zetland Oh and please be quick about it, before Bears r us finds this thread and unleashes the hounds! See the post below for the illustrious list of Good Bears who have already given their support…
So you may have seen the feature on award-winning charity Bravehound on Sport Relief last week. I didn't. But luckily I already knew all about Bravehound, because we've been running our own Fundraiser for them over the last few months - long before they were famous. Our target was £420. we're sitting just short of our target right now, so we need just a few more donations, before we can finally get the ball rolling. So if you haven't already donated to this Fundraiser, and would like to, then here's your opportunity. Just mention here that you want to donate, or PM me or @Zetland and we'll keep you right. We're not looking for a lot btw - just a couple of quid, or whatever you can spare. For those of you who haven't been following @Bears r us updates, here's what a dog looks like... And here's what a Vet looks like... And here's what they look like once we get your donation... It's that simple.
