    We fully appreciate many forum members are students, unemployed or on relatively low incomes and for that reason we knock back adverts or most requests for charitable fundraising activities....but in this one instance, where the beneficiaries are the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund & the Devon Air Ambulance, we heartily endorse this one annual event.

    If you feel inclined to help invest in your future & those less fortunate, who you may well serve alongside, my suggestion is you may like to perhaps contribute a quid or two, here and there when able over the coming months.

    Just a little reminder for those able to contribute towards this annual charity event.

    So far there are around 34 partaking and it's a cracking way of getting an insight as to just what the endurance course involves.

    Needless to say, I already know what it involves so will be there cheering everyone along :)

    Bump. Under one month to go now!

    An event which supports two worthy charities which make a real difference. The Royal Marines Charity provides support across a broad spectrum of RM causes, from individual need to more general support. Devon Air Ambulance Trust keeps the air ambulance flying. At least one forum user has personally benefited in recent years. He suffered a serious medical episode on the Bottom Field and was airlifted by Devon Air Ambulance from CTCRM to a specialist hospital. He made a full recovery and successfully completed RT.

    Please take a look at the Just Giving page in post #1 above.
    Money is tight for everyone but the cost of pint of beer or a pack of cigarettes will contribute to Ninja's Worriers hitting the target. Thanks.

    For those within strike range of CTC on this particular event on 13th Oct, it'll be great to put a few usernames to faces - parents, partners, family members, recruits, potential future recruits, their relatives, future relatives or even... trained ranks, the more the merrier. Just pm your contact details.

    I could do with a few spectator oppos during the even itself, or in the pub before, after or during :)
