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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. Only 360 tickets were available. Sold out ages ago! Should be a fun night. The last one certainly was. RangersMedia Erskine Fund has bought 20 ticketsfor Erskine. Cost £300 We'll provide some spending money for the Veterans too, for the raffle and football card, and the great thing is that not only do the Veterans get a great night out, but all the money we spend ends up back at Erskine, (and the Rangers Former Player Benevolent Fund), so it's a win-win situation! When was the last time you heard that on here??? I'll be there too. I'll be somewhere near the Erskine Crew, so feel free to pop over and say "here's my donation" I'll stick some photos up here. But in the meantime, here are some from the last one... And that's why you should become a Member of the RangersMedia Erskine Fund, if you aren't already!
  9. 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'll 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...
  10. I'm delighted to announce that Rangers Youth Development Company Will be holding another of their Legendary Champions League Final Nights. £15 a ticket. They will sell out fast. If you want some reserving, PM me. Proceeds to Erskine and Rangers Former Players Benevolent Society. For those who don't remember the last one, I'll fill you in with the details later. We'll definitely be sending a large contingent from Erskine again. That's exactly what the Fund money is for.
  11. BRAVEHOUND 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.
  12. As we come to the end of the Season, it's good to have a little bit of success to show off. Another successful year for the RM Erskine Fund supporting our Veterans - and Rangers. Next thing you know, I'll be pestering you all for donations to pay for season ticket renewals, Argyle Lunches, and all that jazz. It never ends, does it??? We could easily just stop I suppose. Here's why we don't... This is an old photo they sent accidentally, but it's worth repeating... And @Bears r us - if you're going to quote this post, you really, really need to delete the photos first!
  13. 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.

    *** Winning isn't everything

    Yeah I know none of us want to hear that right now, but it's true. It's not the winning that's put us where we are today. Let's face it, we've lost many more Leagues than we've won over the years. And we've lost many more Cups than we've won over those years. And lets not even mention Europe! So no, it's not the winning that makes Rangers Great. That just makes us successful. It's the Rangers fans that make the club great. And if you don't believe me, here's a wee reminder of what we, The Fans have achieved this season, right here in this tiny little province of Rangers Fandom.: 4 Season Tickets (including all home cup games) For Hollybush House (Combat Stress) - These season tickets have become an integral part of Hollybush House's treatment programme. Many of their patients have real trouble dealing with crowds (and loud noises etc), so what better way to get over that than being part of the best crowd possible - and we've even found them seats right at the back of the section, so they don't need to worry about watching their backs. Might sound silly to you. They assure me, it's not. 4 Season Tickets for Erskine Veterans (including all Home Cup games). While Erskine and Rangers have always had an inseparable bond, amazingly Erskine didn't have a regular source of tickets for Ibrox - until we sorted that out. 2 Season Tickets for Erskine Veterans - at our request, Rangers FC have provided 2 Season Tickets free of charge for Erskine. (3 years running). 4 Season Tickets for Erskine Veterans - at our request, Club1872 have provided 4 Season Tickets for Erskine (including all Home Cup games) Stadium Tour and Argyle Lunch & Beer for Erskine Bishopton Home (10 persons) - includes tips to Waiting Staff and Tour Guide (aka The Rangers Family) Stadium Tour and Argyle Lunch & Beer for Erskine Park Home (10 persons) - includes tips to Waiting Staff and Tour Guide Stadium Tour and Argyle Lunch & Beer for Erskine Bishopton Home (11 persons) - this one is booked for 24th April - includes tips to Waiting Staff and Tour Guide 16 Entrance tickets for Hollybush House Annual Fete - Our members couldn't attend the Fete, but wanted to pay the entrance fee anyway! 3 DVD Players players (& HDMI cables) for Hollybush House. 2 Road Bikes for Hollybush House - they already had a couple of mountain bikes, so this gives them a whole new activity Another road bike for Hollybush House (A Christmas present) Three is surely better than two for a road trip? 12 Tickets for Erskine Veterans, to witness the return of European football to Ibrox. A 12 volt Cooler for Erskine Bishopton Bears to keep their beers cool in the bus to and from Ibrox. 6 tickets, and a wheelchair & companion space for Erskine - Rangers v Marseille A trip to Rothesay for 10 Erskine Veterans Rangers Lotto - 10 Entries per week for 52 weeks - £520 paid up front. All proceeds to Rangers Youth Development Company . Any winnings reinvested. Rising Stars Half time Draw - 20 Entries for every home game. All proceeds to Rangers Youth Development Company . Any winnings reinvested. Assorted donations to various Rangers-family related good causes, including a Christmas collection and a bottle of champagne auctioned off for Wee Joshua Adair. Ibrox Stadium Bricks - We've continued our support this season with another 10 brick orders. Taking our total brick purchases to well over a hundred! Rangers Lotto T-Shirts - we bought about 55 (!!) from the Rangers Youth Development Company, to sell on to members at cost price. We have about 20 left, and you WILL buy them! £1500 to 4 Erskine Homes, for their Christmas Celebrations. This has paid for lots of extra celebrations, such as a new Christmas Tree, a Santa Suit (till we came along, Erskine Park had to borrow one!!), extra live entertainment, new Christmas ornaments, posh whisky, etc, etc. And still got a wee bit of money left in the bank. So that's what failure looks like - just imagine what we'll achieve next season, with a treble under our belt. And I have no doubt that you'll all be Ready again next season. Those Erskine Season tickets aren't going to renew themselves you know. So if you haven't already pledged yourself to the RangersMedia Erskine Fund, get a move on!
  15. Just in case anyone is worried - no of course I don't keep any Fund Data on the website. Do you think I'm an idiot??? Any personal data you may have given to me in the past is as secure as it always is. We could still do with a few new donations though.
  16. Since our November Fundraiser thread is getting a bit tired, I figured this was worthy of its own thread... I got an email and some pics from Erskine recently (actually ages ago, but I'm only now getting round to it)... So that's Christmas over and done with for another year. Veteran Bear Ian is now waiting patiently in the Transport Office, because he's heard that apparently there's another Stadium Tour and Argyle Lunch coming up soon. And finally, we've got a Home Cup tie to look forward to... Just one small point I'd like to raise though... You'll notice that Erskine are always thankful to everyone at RM. Well technically they shouldn't be. They should be thankful to the 200 or so members of the RangersMedia Erskine Fund - the members who put their hands in their pockets (or their PayPal for The People!). The rest of you RM members, who haven't donated to the RM Erskine Fund. Thanks for nothing. If you want to enjoy all those Erskine Thanks without all that shame and guilt, then simply pop in a small donation, the way all these other Good Bears did...
  17. 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...

  18. And that's the key point right there in red. Unlike Erskine with their own department budgets, we can justify whatever the fuck we want, or more importantly, whatever the fuck the Residents want, (just as long as it ain't green) And here are the results... Job well done folks.
  19. 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.

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. *** 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.

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.
