  1. Welcome to The Official RM Erskine Fund NOVEMBER FUNDRAISER - DONATE NOW!!! Thread Most of you already know what the Fund is all about, and that's why you so gladly contribute to it year after year. And so you already know that a donation to the RM Erskine Fund is one of the most satisfying and effective ways to spend a Blue Pound. Here's what your Blue Pound does: 1. Supports Rangers-Supporting Erskine Veterans by providing Season Tickets, Cup tickets, Stadium Tours, Argyle Lunches and any other Rangers Products and Services that fit the bill 2. Supports Rangers-supporting Combat Stress Veterans by providing Season Tickets and Cup Tickets for Veterans 3. Supports Rangers FC directly, via the purchase of aforementioned products and services for Erskine and Combat Stress 4. Supports Rangers Youth Development through the purchase and promotion of Rangers Lotto, Half-time Rising Stars, Rangers Stadium Bricks etc 5. Supports Rangers Charity Foundation through the support and promotion of their various fundraising events. 6. Supports Erskine's recreational needs and wishes via our Recreation Fund, allowing the purchase of such things as: whisky galore, boat trips, steam-train journeys, theatre trips, fish and chips, and much much more. 7. Support for other Rangers-Family related appeals, including: Nith Valley RSC Appeal, Big Ibrox Sleep Out, Jak Trueman Appeal, Fernando Ricksen appeal, Joshua Adair appeal tbh there's loads more, but I'm not trawling through 4 years of accounts to give you the full picture. You can do that yourself! I'm sure you'll agree that's pretty good use. Even more so when you remember that we have no admin costs, so every penny of your donation gets spent on the stuff we say we're spending it on. So anyway, on to November. After Remembrance day, the national spotlight tends to move elsewhere, and our Veterans are largely forgotten. Not here though. November is the time when we collect the donations that are going to pay to make Erskine's Christmas as Excellent as it always is when we're around. This season, we need to raise enough money to do the following: £1200 to be split between our 3 Homes. A traditional surprise last-minute addition to the Christmas Party budget for our 3 Erskine Homes. We make it last minute so that they've already got everything ready for their Christmas parties, ensuring that our donation is spent strictly on bonus additional luxury items for their Christmas festivities. £100 - Assorted boiled sweets and toffees. You can never have enough. I hear they often use our goodies as bonus bingo prizes, which has really livened up bingo nights. £100 - Rangers Merchandise. There have been one or two new additions to the Erskine Bears RSC this season, so we need to make sure they get some Official Rangers Clothing from Santa this year, so they can fit in with the Old Guard. Not on the same scale as last season thankfully! £100 - Clothing retailers. There are one or two Veterans in Erskine who don't really have any relatives left, so they naturally don't get as many presents as those with lots of relatives visiting. So we'll find out what size they are, buy a couple of jumpers and stuff, and stick them under the tree so they don't feel left out on Christmas Morning. £100 - Selection boxes and stuff - well it is Christmas after all! £0 - Whisky - I've got a few bottles already donated by members this season, and I'm sure if I put the word out, we';; get a few more bottles donated, so I don't think we'll need to spend any money directly on alcohol. Let's use that money instead for panto tickets. £200 - Panto tickets £140 - Argyle Restaurant Lunch for 10 people - already paid for thanks to @WILLIAM BEAR £150 - Road bike for Hollybush House (Combat Stress) - We bought them two earlier in the year. Three is obviously better than two. So there you go. I reckon about 2 Grand should cover that. I've already made my donation. What are you waiting for? Existing RM Erskine Fund Members - Your donation is optional. You have already done your bit this season by Donating £10 or more to join the Fund. But if you can spare an additional donation now, then that's grand! If you've never donated to the RM Erskine Fund before, then what are you waiting for. As all these other Good Bears listed below will agree, it really is the done thing around these parts. To donate: It's the usual paypal address, or the usual bank account. If you need the details again, then PM @govanblue or @Zetland And the usual "tick friends & family" on paypal And the usual "add your username in the description" whichever way you donate. And the usual "send a PM to @govanblue once you've donated. Now go check below to see if you are in the November Fundraiser Hall of Fame yet...
  2. On Remembrance Day.

    On Remembrance Sunday, we remember The Fallen. On Monday, let's make sure we remember The Living too. RangersMedia Erskine Fund November Fundraiser - Re-Member this November! To make a donation, PM govanblue or Zetland - or else just do whatever you usually do.
  3. Hi Team, just a quick one here. I occasionally read the odd post where an RM Member is saying something along the lines of "the Fund deserves more recognition for what it does". Well the truth is, we don't want recognition, and ask specifically that we don't get it. We get our thank-you's privately, and just keep them within the Bears' Den, and that suits us. But in response to those who do think we should get more recognition, here's a brief update: Erskine Military Ball - The Fund was invited to the Fundraisers' Event of the Year. £100 a ticket, and we got two free!!! Inevitably, I turned up late, and couldn't find my table. There were about 45 tables, and I figured I'd be on #46, with the kids and Cousin Ruprek, but it turns out we were in fact TOP Table! Not bad and more honour than I could cope with really! And in other news, our Very Good Friend, Colin Stewart, Director of Rangers Youth Development Co. has asked two of our members to join us with him in the Directors' Box for the Aberdeen game. I'm trying to flog those obviously! So never let it be said that either Erskine, or Rangers Youth Development Co. don't appreciate our efforts far more than we either let on, or really realise ourselves. But let's not dwell on that, let's just focus on doing what we do best. And for the record, there are only 100 of these Erskine Centenary Thank-You Medals in existence - One is displayed proudly in the Rangers trophy Room... And another in The Fund trophy room. We got ours first btw. But in terms of recognition, this is still probably the one that mean most to me... I think that's a clear example of how what we do is different to your regular charity donations, and worth doing no matter what else you do with your time and money. But then I'm biased.
  4. Dear Non-Fund Member. As you've probably noticed, You've been reported to Admin. You'll probably see a wee notification in the top right hand corner of the page. This is because you have consistently refused to donate to the RM Erskine Fund, and therefore we've come to the only natural conclusion, which is that you're a taig. The only way to remedy this, redeem your reputation, and continue posting on RM is to join the RM Erskine Fund... http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/topic/306989-rangersmedia-erskine-fund- Don't say you haven't been warned.
  5. Sold - 1 Bar72 ticket v Progrès Niederkorn - Thursday 29 June. £20 - If you're an EXISTING FUND MEMBER £30 - If you're not! Proceeds go to the RM Erskine Fund First member to post on this thread that they want it, gets it. - Now Sold
  6. And here is the News. Tonight, read by Iain McG from Erskine Bishopton... The Residents of Pearson House, Erskine Bishopton had a great day out at Ibrox on Tuesday. The following faces have been blurred - not to protect their identity, but because I think the photographer had had one half too many! Artist's reconstruction: Business news now... Now over to our reporter, live from the naughty seat... Archives: Erskine were delighted to discover that one of the medals that they presented to Rangers a few months ago... ... is indeed proudly on display in the trophy room... And now the Sport. Here's Old Iain (He's 82 btw) just reminding us all that he's still got it. (Sadly' I've had to crop the picture, cos it's just too hot for you guys to handle - and no, I'm not PMing it to you. ) Phew, after all that, I bet they had an appetite... Luckily the RangersMedia Erskine Fund had laid on a 3 course meal and a pint for everyone. We're already planning the next one. And that's why we need your donation! And tonight's headlines again... [camera 1 zoom in for product close-up] To donate towards our next Erskine Ibrox Day Out, read here... http://forum.rangersmedia.co.uk/topic/306989-rangersmedia-erskine-fund- the-official-201718-season-pre-season-training-starts-here/
  7. *** 6 things about Combat Stress that you need to know right now!! 1. Combat Stress is the UK's leading veterans' mental health charity. We treat a range of mental health conditions including PTSD, depression and anxiety. Mental health issues can affect ex-servicemen and women of all ages. Right now, we have more than 6,000 veterans registered with us for support. We're a vital lifeline for these veterans, and their families. Our treatment and support services are always free of charge for veterans. We are Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered and the NHS England PTSD specialist treatment provider for veterans. 2. Hollybush House In some cases, Veterans may be offered a short period of treatment at one of our three residential centres, in Ayrshire (Hollybush House), Shropshire and Surrey. The length of stay will vary from two days to six weeks, depending on the treatment package that we agree with you. The warm and friendly atmosphere at all of our centres allows Veterans to feel at home, amongst other Veterans whose experiences may be similar to their own. At all three centres, we have a team of dedicated professionals (trained in several different and complementary treatment and care methods), who work together to provide treatment and care. 3. A large number of Residents at Hollybush House are already big Rangers fans. Some hold season tickets, some are RangersMedia posters, and some are RM Erskine Fund Members. A lot of Residents of Hollybush House leave the centre having BECOME big Rangers fans. One or two have even gone home and bought season tickets. (I’ve actually got an update about that, but I’ll save that for now!) 4. Recent reports from some of the Hollybush House Residents indicate that funding has been drastically cut across the board at Hollybush House, and that one of the areas most affected is funding for recreational activities. We contribute a little to their Recreational Activities by providing those 4 Season tickets, and a subscription to Rangers TV – but it would be nice if we could do something more. Apparently there’s not much else on offer! 5. On Saturday 10th June, Hollybush House will be holding their Annual Fete. Admission is £2.50 (£1 concession) and all money raised will go towards their Funds. I’ll be there and I’m planning to make a wee donation to their Recreation Fund from our Fund. 6. (this is the important one!!!) If you can’t make it along to the Fete, you can still contribute to the cause – simply donate the admission price (or whatever you want!) to our Fund, tell me it’s for Hollybush House, and I’ll make sure we use that money to help provide some other form of Recreational activity for them. I haven’t figured out what yet. I plan to talk to some former Residents about what they think is needed. Message Ends.
  8. I am delighted to announce that the Rangers Charity Foundation have once again donated 10 Stadium Tour Passes to Erskine. So on Tuesday 13th June, a group of 10 Veterans (and staff) from Erskine Bishopton Home will be able to enjoy the Tour, and then have a nice lunch and a pint in the Argyle Restaurant (Ibrox Stadium). The Tour guide and the waiting staff, who always look after our Veterans so well, will enjoy a generous tip, and thus we will continue our fine tradition of maximising the benefit of our spending for the benefit of the whole Rangers family. I think this will be our 6th Erskine Ibrox Day Out - I've lost count actually. The cost of the Lunch, Drinks and tips will be about £180, which works out at only £2 from each of our existing 90 Paid up members. The bill's not due till 13th June though, so hopefully we'll have lots more new members by then, and the cost will be pennies per person.
  9. Membership of the RM Erskine Fund Platinum Members Club is automatic for any Member who donates £50 or more to the RM Erskine Fund. These 45 Fine Upstanding Members have done just that...

  10. Welcome to the official RangersMedia Erskine Fund - New Season, New Membership - Pledge your Support Here Thread. [short version for existing members - membership renewal for the New Season is due now. PM me or @Zetland for payment details. If you want to join, but can't pay yet for whatever reason, then get yourself on the Pledged List for now - that's semi-respectable at least! The RM Erskine Fund is a voluntary fundraising group funded by RM Member donations (and other occasional fundraising activities). 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) by providing 4 Season Tickets for their exclusive use, Rangers TV and Rangers Match Programme Subscriptions 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 £60,000 raised to date (and spent very wisely!), we are now enthusiastically embarking on our 6th 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 - the more members we have, the more we can achieve, so please join us. It's easy, and very rewarding. Season membership of The Fund is a minimum donation of £10. But if you're feeling a bit flush, you can donate as much as you want!!! Last season's members - you know the score - please get yourself on the pledged list - and please encourage other RM Members to do the same - Some of them just need a wee pointer. New or potential members - PM @govanblue or @Zetland with any questions you may have. ---------------------------------------- How to donate: Donations via PayPal or by Bank Transfer. 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.
  11. SOLD! Yes I know this should really be in the tickets for sale forum, but it's late in the day, and anyway, the money raised from these tickets will go towards season tickets for the Veterans which will help The Club buy more players, hence Bear's Den! So anyway, One Adult & Child ticket for sale for tomorrow's game. Club Deck 5 (that's the middle, Broomloan side) Tickets to be collected from Ibrox Ticket Collection Booth. PM me if interested. First come, first served.
  12. Once again, I've got the numbers wrong and so we find ourselves two seats short for the Erskine Cottage Residents. If anyone has two seats (together) going spare and would like to donate them to Erskine for tomorrow, please let me know ASAP. Many thanks to @King's Troop and @Sparkle who have already donated their seats for this game. [ EDIT: tickets now sourced. All good! ]
  13. First things first - if you're not already an RM Erskine Fund Member, then please join now. Membership for the remainder of the Season 2016/2017 costs only a minimum of £10 (or more if you prefer) That's it. Pretty cheap, huh? PM me to sign up. 213 RM Members have already done just that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are already an RM Erskine Fund Member, and want to make another donation, then who am I to stand in your way. Just PM me for donation instructions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Normally, we'd just give you the link to the RM PayPal page, and ask you to make your donation there, but we're having issues with that PayPal account, hence the need to PM me for alternative payment instructions. Still pretty straightforward, I just don't want to put the link on a public forum. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Every penny donated gets spent on good causes. See below for more info on what we spend your money on. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I haven't updated the accounts for a while. That will need to wait till the PayPal issue is resolved. But in general terms, we're here... £5k - previous balance plus £1300 cash collected since last update plus a few hundred quid (not sure exactly how much yet) not yet collected from PayPal minus £2600 spent since last update Should leave us with a balance of about £4k But £3k of that is reserved for next season's Erskine and Combat Stress Season Tickets, so really we've got a little over a grand left. And a fair chunk of that will be needed to pay for the panto tickets we promised, and any upcoming Home Cup ties - oh, and an Argyle Lunch for Erskine Bishopton. So yeah, we'll be skint pretty soon. But I'm not too worried at the moment, because I expect that once we get the PayPal issue sorted out, we'll get quite a few spontaneous donations to top up the Funds, and make sure we can meet our chosen obligations. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Anyway, here's a snapshot of what we've spent our money on so far this season... Wishing Tree Wish 1 12 places on the Waverley Loch Long Cruise - paid for by @Taipan £100 donation to Wee Joshua Adair - the first of several donations to help this wee fella... 2 x Rangers Youth Members Scheme Annual Memberships for Wee Joshua and his brother - £50 21 Championship Medals bought and donated to Erskine, and 2 to Wee Josh and his brother. Medal proceeds to Rangers Former Players Benevolent Fund 2 tickets for the Rangers Legends v Pompey Legends Help For Heroes Charity Match – donated by @jayzer to Combat Stress, Tyrwhitt House, Surrey. 160 Whisky Miniatures donated once again by @Keeps01 to Erskine for their D-Day Ration Packs. Season Tickets: 4 Seats for Combat Stress (2 paid for by @One Jock Wallace , 1 paid for by @offshoreworker , and 1 paid for by All Fund Members 2 Seats for Erskine Park – Paid for by All Fund Members 2 Seats for Erskine Glasgow - Paid for by All Fund Members 2 seats donated by Rangers FC – for Erskine Park 4 Seats donated independently by Rangers Supporters Trust – for Erskine Bishopton Although the 4 RST seats were nothing to do with us, we have pledged to pay for those seats for any Home Cup ties that come up. So for that purpose, we count each of those 4 seats, and the 2 donated by Rangers FC as “one of our 14 season tickets” In the League Cup Group Stages for example… Rangers v Annan Athletic. 19/07/16 Rangers v Stranraer. 25/07/16 14 Smartcards activated for both games = 28 tickets. Plus 12 additional tickets Total for the 2 games: 40 tickets Cost: £260 Rangers v Peterhead – 28 tickets - £280 Rangers v QotS – 18 tickets - £150 Rising Stars – 20 tickets (£40) for each home League game = £720 Rangers Lotto – 6 tickets for 52 weeks = £312 Blankets and Umbrellas for the Veterans… Fish and Chips at Saltcoats for 12 – paid for by @smidro Season Ticket Seats donated to Erskine as emergency auction prizes for their Golf Night auction Plus a Star Prize Shark-tagging experience donated by @East Enclosure Row N Together these prizes raised over £1000 at their auction. One for the Ladies… Billy Elliott – The Musical Edinburgh Playhouse, 22 September. 4 Veterans, 4 Carers, 1 Driver. Total Cost: £143.50 Lunch in Palomino’s Restaurant for Erskine Bishopton Residents - £195 Donated £72 to Nith Valley RSC Then another £15 just as it closed, to round it off… Ibrox Stadium Tour and Argyle Restaurant Lunch for 12 from Erskine Park Home They forgot to take a photo of their Argyle Lunch after the tour, but it would have been something like this... Donations made towards the Rangers Charity Foundation Big Ibrox Sleep Out: I’m not sure exactly how much, but a big slice of the £2500 raised by the RangersRadio crew was directly from Fund members. Some more fish and chips… £500 donated to the Erskine Homes’ Christmas Parties… That's some of the more notable highlights. There have also been lots and lots of other news items, like the countless tickets donated to help the Fund, Raffle prizes donated, match ticket bonusball raffles, Championship Medal sales, and of course, the many additional donations made by so many Fund Members. Without whose continued loyal support, none of this would have happened. Oh and no need for "govanblue deserves a medal" - I got one earlier this year from Erskine. So that's me sorted for medals. Let's move on.

  15. Goodbye to an Erskine Bear

    Some sad news from Erskine...
  16. *** RM Erskine Fund – Season 2016/17 - Accounts, Members, Donations, Discussion, Action BUMP! The RM Erskine Fund is a voluntary fundraising group funded by RM Member donations (and other occasional fundraising activities). 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) by providing 4 Season Tickets for their exclusive use, Rangers TV and Rangers Match Programme Subscriptions 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 £42,000 raised to date (and spent very wisely!), we are now enthusiastically embarking on our 5th 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. 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.

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.

  18. Bear with me on this one, I'll get there... In only one month's time, it is the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Many of the current Erskine Residents either served or lived through WWII and so as you can imagine, D-Day Celebrations are a big thing for them - especially such a significant one (70th). Erskine Homes always have D-Day parties, complete with Bunting, Spam and Vera Lynn etc, but this year they're wanting to push the boat out a bit more. As part of the celebrations, they plan to give each Resident a "Ration Pack" of goodies, and in amongst this pack they want to give everyone a miniature of Whisky. The Residents fair love a wee dram. Erskine Park have asked me to ask you to see if any of our members have any connection with the trade (retail/manufacture/distribution bootlegging), and might be able to point them towards getting a good deal. They're looking for quite a lot - about 30 for Erskine Park Home, and 30 for Erskine Mains Home, and the other 3 Homes may want to do similar) - so they're not expecting such a big donation (not from us at least!), they're just hoping we can point them to the best price/trade discount or whatever. Obviously any donations won't be refused though! But who knows - maybe we have a member who's a whisky distributor with a shed full of unsellable whisky miniatures?? Or maybe we have 30 members who would each want to post an unwanted miniature to the Home?? Or maybe we have a member who has a spare pile of something else, like After Eight Mints, or jam, or tights(??), or anything else you think they could make use of. Any other ideas are welcome. Oh and for the younger ones amongst us - we won the war.
