  1. RangersMedia Erskine Fund – End of Season Fundraiser. Well folks, here we are again It’s Season Ticket renewal time, which means we need to find another £3000 to renew our Erskine and Combat Stress Season Tickets. We also have Champions League Final Night at Ibrox, which is always very popular with the Veterans, and will set us back another £600. And before we know it, we’ll be back to to back to back friendlies and Europa Qualifiers, which fingers crossed, will also set us back a load of cash! These games are particularly important for our Erskine Veterans, because the weather is usually better in June, which gives some of the frailer Veterans a chance to get to the games. Our new season Membership Fundraiser will start at the same time as our first competitive match (June, I guess), so until then, we’ll need a wee Funds injection to help us meet our needs. So there you have it – if we are to continue doing what we do, then we’re going to need more cash. This is what more cash looks like... Traditionally, we don’t ask for a massive donation at the end of season, because we appreciate that you have already worked your socks off donating all season long, and because the New season will be upon us all too soon. So if you can spare a fiver, that’s grand. If you’re doing all right, and want to give more than a fiver, then that’s grand too. If you’re not doing so well, and would struggle to find a fiver. Sorry to hear that. Maybe consider donating just a pound, because £1 or £100 – it’s all the same in the Hall of Fame. Donations are via PayPal or Bank Transfer. If you already have the details then fire away – but remember to put your RM username in as a reference somewhere – and if you’re using PayPal Please remember to select the “send money to friends or family” option, so that we can avoid the PayPal fees. If you don’t know our PayPal address or Bank details, or need help figuring out how to do it then add a post here, or PM @Zetland , who will provide you with all you need to know. Zetland will also maintain the End Of Season Hall of Fame below.
  2. May I introduce Robert Johnston, Aged 96, Erskine Glasgow Resident and Lifelong Bear... who was delighted to receive his new top recently, courtesy of RM Erskine Fund Members. He doesn't get to as many games as he'd like these days, but he's delighted that there's a season ticket sitting waiting for him any time he fancies it. And then we have Big Thank-You's from four Erskine Bishopton Bears, also delighted with their tops, and looking forward to wearing them at as many games as possible next season. So that's where £100 of your donations went. I hope you approve. If you would like to see more of stuff like that, then simply donate a few quid to the RM Erskine Fund, and we can do more on your behalf. Next up, we've bought 28 tickets for Erskine for the Ibrox Champions League Fundraiser Night next weekend. We'll also want to provide them with some beer money and raffle tickets on the night. That will bring our spending for the season to a close, then we can start worrying about how to do it all again next season!
  3. It's been 5 years since I made that post, and I've never ever needed to follow it up, because every D-Day since has been marked by a Heroic and Legendary Donation from Keeps01. This year, the 75th anniversary of D-Day, is no exception. Keeps01 has delivered once again, and Erskine are delighted to receive their traditional annual delivery of 160 whisky miniatures, which are always a most welcome addition to the Veteran's D-Day Ration Packs. Check it out... Oh there is one sad bit of news though. In a tragic hunting accident, Keeps01 has lost his profile. Long Live Keeps2.0 - whoever and wherever he may be.
  4. Many thanks to @King's Troop and @WILLIAM BEAR who have once again donated their unused season tickets to the Fund for the Hibs game. Those tickets were gratefully received by a couple of ex-Servicemen. Here's an account from one of them, an ex-Argyll if I remember correctly. He and his son were over the moon to get some free tickets and came down from Inverness for a day to remember... And before anybody says anything about those photos - I know!!! But he's only young! Hopefully we've intervened early enough for a full recovery to still be possible and hopefully we can kit him out with some proper Rangers gear from Mrs Eagle's Charity Shop.
  5. We have one pair of tickets for Sundays game to be raffled (using the National Lottery Bonusball to decide the winning number). Many thanks to @Sparkle once again for donating her unused seats. If you would like to win these 2 tickets, just add a post here, and tell us how many bonusball entries you would like. Entries cost £2 each and you can choose your own bonusball number from the remaining numbers. Don't pay any money just yet, because I'm hopeful that once other Fund Members see this thread, we may get another unused ticket or two donated. If that happens, then I will put the price up a little bit (£1 for every ticket we have available). The winners can collect their tickets from the Ticket Office any time after the lottery draw. (Can somebody remind me which day the bonusball draw is on?) Who's in?
  6. Welcome to the RM Erskine Fund - Members Thread - Season 2018/19 The RM Erskine Fund is a voluntary fundraising group funded by RM Member donations (and other occasional fundraising activities), now entering its 5.5th season. I've lost count of how much we've raised (and spent wisely!) in that time. But for sure, it's WELL over a hundred thousand pounds. It's definitely made a difference; and all we need from you to keep it rolling is a measly tenner!! The Fund's primary role is to provide Recreational Treats directly to the Residents of Erskine Veterans Care Homes. We do this primarily by providing Rangers Season Tickets, Match Tickets, Hospitality Tickets, Stadium Tours, Argyle Restaurant Lunches, Rangers TV subscriptions, Rangers merchandise and clothing, and anything else we can think of. Not only does this make the MANY Rangers supporting Veterans very happy, it also has a double bonus of putting a lot of that money directly back in to The Club, and keeping those Blue Pounds Blue! We also provide occasional non-Rangers related Recreational Treats, to ensure that ALL residents benefit from our Fund, and not just the Bears. Recent examples: Boat Trips, Restaurant Lunches, Christmas Party Donations, Palace Visits, D-Day Whisky Miniatures, Fish n Chips, and pretty much anything that Erskine fancy (Even Billy Elliott!) We also support Residents of Hollybush House Hospital (Combat Stress) by providing 4 Season Tickets for their exclusive use. These seats have become an important part of Hollybush House's recreational therapy. Many of their Residents have serious issues dealing with crowds, loud noises, etc. The value of a friendly crowd, which they can genuinely feel a part of, can not be understated. We also allocate a portion of our Fund to supporting Rangers Youth Development, in the form of regular subscriptions to Rangers Lotto, Half-time Rising Stars, Brick purchases, and more. This season we've also pledged our support to the BRAVEHOUND charity, who provide trained Companion Dogs for Veterans with PTSD or other issues. We've bought a puppy for BRAVEHOUND. His name is Broxi, and he's currently in Basic Training, before deployment. So we will have a continuing responsibility to contribute to his upkeep. And we even have enough left over to make sure that we are able to make a small donation on behalf of RM members, to Rangers-related fundraisers, to help out other Bears in their time of need, or to support their Good Cause. The Fund has no running costs (as long as you remember to tick the "friends and family" option on PayPal!). So every penny donated is properly spent and properly accounted for. Here's a summary of what we did last season... http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/topic/315733-rm-erskine-fund-the-season-is-over-how-did-we-do/?do=findComment&comment=1064801364 Not bad, eh? Season membership of The Fund is a one-off minimum donation of £10 (or more). But if you're feeling a bit flush, you can donate as much as you want!!! That's it. You don't need to donate every month or anything like that. In November, we will run a mid-season fundraiser, but you don't need to donate to that, or to the end-of season fundraiser. Most people DO donate something whenever I pop up with a new fundraiser - I guess that's because they have a couple of quid spare, and they approve of what we're doing with it. But it's always optional. ---------------------------------------- How to donate: Donations via PayPal or by Bank Transfer. PM @Zetland for details. Last season's members - you know the score - please get yourself on the donated list, (or the pledge list if you're waiting for payday) - and please encourage other RM Members to do the same - Some of them just need a wee pointer. Renewing, New or potential members - PM @Zetland with any questions you may have. @Zetland will look after the Hall Of Fame Members List in the post below, and then I'll put a load of photos in the post below that, just to remind everybody why we're bothering. And then I'll put a few posts in to summarise what we've done so far this season, and what's next. So, without further ado, let's go...
  7. Greetings! You may have noticed that I've been out of the game for the last few months. Well I'm back in the game now. I've got a bit of catching up to do, and I notice that there are hundreds of new Forum Members who haven't signed up to the RM Erskine Fund. Let's sort that, shall we? If you haven't already donated to the Fund, then please do so. You can afford it, and your donation will be put to much better use than any other donation you may make elsewhere. If you're already a Fund Member, but haven't donated to our current (optional) Mid-Season Top-Up Fundraiser, then please consider doing so. Donating is easy - either via PayPal or Bank Transfer. PM me or @Zetland for the details. Now to the updates: My last proper update was in mid-October, so there's quite a bit to catch up on...

Have I missed anyone? PM me if your name's not here. Total donated by Members, October to January: £2,577.46 And now, let us turn our attention back to the Mid-Season Fundraiser, which is currently in full swing...
  8. And with two weeks to go till our next Home Game, I don't really know what to do with myself. I guess I'll have to just focus on building up the Squad. The time has just rushed past, and we're fast approaching the November Mid-Season Fundraiser - you know? the one that pays for Erskine's Christmas parties. And normally I would ask all existing Members to consider making another small donation. But when I look at this season's membership list, I see that there are only around 80 names on it. Which is significantly lower than the 220 or so who donated last season. When I look through the list, many of the names that jump out are of Long-standing Members who I know I can rely on. So I'm guessing they've just not got around to donating yet for one reason or another. So before I start the Mid-Season Fundraiser, I'm going to do a shout-out to all of Last Season's Members, who haven't renewed their membership this season. @10pshortof17pound @1bluebaba @40delboy40 @AdmiralBlue @AGC123 @AlCapone @A.T.G @Bad Robot @better than all the rest @BILLYBOY50 @Billythebear77 @Blue72 @BluebearDory @BlueboyG @BLUEDIGNITY @bluegecko @BLUEDIGNITY @Bluekev @bluenose1975 @Blue Nosed Babe @Blueofblood @Bluepeter9 @Blue Sheep @born a blue nose@born a blue nose @Brackley @broomloanjamie @bump @Cadman @Caldoboydo @calio @Cameltoe @CoopsLaud @cruixranger @cstamomusa @dande101 @Dan Deacon @Darth Bear @Dave29 @Deadmansshoe @deco19761 @DexterMorgan @Docspawn @Domthenbud @DW1872 @eosmhdo @fermblue @Finny @FlippinEck @folkestoneger @ForeverAndEver @FoxintheBox @FSM @G13 @Hamie @hammer93 @hammer time @heathen fish boy @HenleyBear @HG5 @Hoody @Hutchy WATP @IbroxBurnzy @Jakes Pal @j1mgg @JC10 @jintybear @JohnH @Johnny Dangerously @Jonok @Junior Soprano @JWAC @Kai_Johansen @Kirkintillochbear @lanarkshire_bear @LaudrupsPatrickBoots @LiviGer @LochendBilly @LSgers @macmac @mearns loyal @MFJ14 @mgartley82 @murzo @mus @Muz333 @my shepherds @McEwan's Lager @NavyBear @newlanarkboy @NornIronBear @OceanRain @oldbear @oldskoolblue @onefootwillie @Orange Persson @Perth_Campsie_Ger @plumbGER @Prytz's Perm @ps95v7 @Pure_Quality @Quiet Jim @RangersScotty9 @ranter @rblair92 @RFCRobertson @RJMcGregor @Rmc54 @Rosebery1872 @scott12003 @SJFC 2004 @sRcFoCt @SteveEarle @SuperTav @Taipan @TaysideBear @thebluedoo @TheCutch @TheMurray83@thetruthisootthere @theweebluenose @Thewhitesettler @thistleman @toad @Twadugs @Wee Bud @westieblue @William McBeath @wullho @WWTC Hello Former Fund Members.

Without them, we couldn't have achieved anything at all, but with them, we managed quite a bit. Here's a brief summary of what your donations achieved in the last 12 months... http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/topic/315733-rm-erskine-fund-the-season-is-over-how-did-we-do/?do=findComment&comment=1064801364 I would also like to take this opportunity to ask you to pledge your support once again this season. All Donations (large or small), always welcome. The donation lines are now open. Most of you know the donation method already. If not, PM either me or @Zetland RM Erskine Fund - Season 5.5 - Let's Go.
  10. Annoyingly, the Erskine and Combat Stress Season Tickets need to be renewed before the season starts, which means that we really need to have money in place before the season starts, and therefore before we've started the New Season Fundraiser. Otherwise, if we wait till the season starts, then our Veterans will miss the first few games while I desperately try to squeeze 3 grand out of you. So to get around that, what we're doing is asking anyone who has a bit of spare cash now to donate a couple of quid or whatever to the Fund now. If we get a good few donations, then that gives us the confidence to go and buy the Season Tickets now, confident that enough money will come in in the new season Fundraiser to cover the expense now. So if you'd like to donate to the Fund, and ensure that our Veterans are there to Greet Stevie G MBE on his debut, then please PM @Zetland for the donation details - But don't go mental! You'll still need to keep at least a tenner for the New Season Fundraiser which is not far away. And all your good deeds for this season will count for nothing when we start our new list. Alles klaar?
  11. current highest bids: Size XL - £25.00 - Gazza2258 Size S - £23.00 - Sweettartangirl RangersMedia Erskine Fund is delighted to bring to the market these two classic examples, circa mid-2018, of the finest Rangers Lotto T-Shirts that Turkish Lira can buy. One is size XL And one is size S As featured in the Daily Record... When they're gone, they're gone. What am I bid? And Many thanks to @1bluebaba for very generously donating them to the RM Erskine Fund.
  12. Greetings Fellow Bears, and welcome to our definitely absolutely FINAL Fundraiser of the season. And we've saved the best till last - A Double-Your-Money Guarantee!!! @Darth Bear works for DHL, who as you know, have always been the Fund's favourite logistics company. And DHL, good folk that they are, have an employee charity support scheme whereby they will match anything their employee raises for their chosen charity - up to a maximum of £600. Darth is a nutjob, and is therefore going to put himself through yet another Tough Mudder (10-12 mile assault course designed by British Special Forces), and he would like us to support him, supporting us, supporting Erskine. So we've set ourselves a target to try and raise that £600 with him for Erskine, from donations from our fellow Good Bears, as a kind of End Of Season Fundraiser. Whether we raise the full £600 or not, whatever we do raise, DHL will match, so we can't lose! So if you haven't already donated to any other End Of Season Fundraisers in the last few weeks, then why not kill three birds with one stone? How could we resist such a gilt-edged opportunity to raise a massive £1200 for Erskine, at a cost of only £600 to us, and all it takes is that end of season fundraiser donation that you were going to make anyway!!! So to help us double our support for Erskine, simply PM me or @Zetland for donation instructions. Or if you already know those donation instructions, just make your donation the usual way and PM me. And of course, although DHL will be chipping in half the money, the decision as to what to do with that money will be down to Erskine Recreation and RM Erskine Fund - so we can assume it will get very well used.
  13. Hi Folks, I think I've got my sums wrong and we find ourselves two tickets short for Friday. If anyone has their 2 season tickets enabled for the Bury game, but aren't going to make it, please consider donating them to the RM Erskine Fund where a couple of deserving Veterans are ready to make use of them. As always, I don't need your smartcard, just your Rangers number. And don't even think about coming in here with any smart-arsed comments about "other RSC"s - unless you're also donating seats!
  14. Why 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?
  15. As you know, here at RangersMedia Erskine Fund, we like to do things a little differently. So, in a move that is likely to send shock waves around the Rangers merchandise world, we are currently selling Official Rangers Products at loss-making prices. Even more unusually, we're not going to incur any "costs" in the process, so every penny we take in sales (sales mind, not profits!) will go directly to Rangers Youth Development Company. So grab yourself a Bluenosed Bargain now, and it'll be with you in plenty of time for Christmas! So what do we have on offer for you this Christmas: Official Rangers Lotto T-Shirts cost £15. Cost to you: £12 Available in most sizes - I'll get a firm update on what we have left in stock tomorrow. There are 4 T-Shirts available. Here are 3 of them And here is the 4th... Smart, eh? And only £12 each!!! Stadium Bricks: Get a message for a loved one emblazoned on Ibrox this Christmas. They cost £50 each, but yes, you've guessed it, we're selling them for less than that. only £40 via The Fund. Get your order in now, and you'll have the certificate in time for Christmas. (The bricks themselves won't go up until after the New Year) Oh, buying your brick through The Fund also brings certain benefits unavailable anywhere else (to be revealed to buyers only, but ask any previous buyer - they weren't disappointed!) Any questions?

PM @govanblue or @Zetland for details. @Zetland will be looking after the Pledged List and updating the Members List - and if you think I'm a tenacious bastard, wait till you see her in action. Note: Please do not feel obliged to publicly say how much you're donating. But then on the other hand, if you're planning on making a particularly generous donation, then telling people how much you're donating, and why, might encourage other members to do something similar. Do what you want really, as you always do! Current Pledged Members List - see next post. If you're name's not on it, then add a post to this thread.

We launched this season’s new membership a few days ago, and the response from members has been awesome - We already have over 100 New Members before a ball is even kicked. But the more members we have, the more we can achieve, so please join us. It's easy. How to donate: To donate to the RangersMedia Erskine Fund, simply make a donation of any amount you want via the RM PayPal Donate Page… http://www.rangersmedia.co.uk/paypal.html And then – VERY IMPORTANT – PM me to let me know you’ve donated. Or alternatively you can meet at Ibrox and donate cash.
  18. RM Erskine Rangers Recreation Fund - Season 2015/16 Ordinary RM Members Supporting Extraordinary Erskine Veterans. Donate here: http://www.rangersmedia.co.uk/paypal.html Welcome to the New RM Erskine Fund Thread – Season 2015/16 Latest Accounts: http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=284912 (The previous thread can be found here… http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=283308&page=41#entry1062778380 and all the other Fund threads can be found here… http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=search&search_tags=erskine%2Blunch%2Bfund&search_app=forums and here… http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=search&search_tags=rm%2Bsponsors%2Bfund&search_app=forums - That’s a lot of threads! The RangersMedia Erskine Rangers Recreation Fund (aka The Fund) is a voluntary fundraising group funded by RM Member donations (and other occasional fundraising activities). A donation of £5 or more gains you membership of the Fund’s Hall of Fame, which is by far the most respectable list around these parts - but more importantly, it helps us help our Veterans, and our Club. The money raised is spent as follows: Providing Rangers FC Products and Services to Residents of 4 Erskine Care Homes (eg: Season Tickets, Match Tickets, Hospitality Tickets, Stadium Tours, Argyle Restaurant Lunches, Rangers TV, Rangers Match Programmes) Providing non-Rangers-related Recreational Treats for the Residents of 4 Erskine Homes (eg: Boat Trips, Restaurant Lunches, Christmas Party Donations, Palace Visits, D-Day Whisky Miniatures) Supporting The Rangers Family - Rangers Development Fund, Rangers Charity Foundation, Rangers Ladies, Rangers Football In The Community. (we also support Residents of Hollybush House Hospital (Combat Stress) along the same lines as the Erskine Homes) The Fund has no running costs – (except the 6% PayPal fee charged by PayPal on all donations ). So every penny donated is properly spent and properly accounted for. With over £25,000 raised to date (and spent very wisely!), we are now enthusiastically embarking on our 4th Season of Supporting Erskine Veterans and Rangers FC. It promises to be our most successful season so far - and that’s why we’d really like you to join us. We launched this season’s new membership a few days ago, and the response from members has been awesome - We already have over 100 New Members before a ball is even kicked. But the more members we have, the more we can achieve, so please join us. It's easy. To Support our Activities, and Join our Hall of Fame, simply donate £5 or more to the Fund (and PM me). If money is in short supply, that's all we need from you. If even £5 is too much, not a problem - PM me for a full concession - there are other ways to help apart from money! If you earn enough to donate more than £5, then please feel free to donate as you see fit. If you're on holiday, offshore, waiting for pay day etc, then PM me and I'll add you to the Pledged List - then you can donate whenever is good for you.
