    Out of parts donated by folk on another forum, 2 bikes have been built. The bikes will be raffled and the money donated to charity. This was mentioned on STW, if anyone is interested the STW thread can be found below. Pictures of the bikes are here

    2 charities have so far been decided on for the money to be donated to, a poll for a third worthy cause is currently on going on another forum. Anyone interested in contributing to the vote can vote in the link below (you'll need to register to the forum of course).

    Tickets will be about a fiver. 50% of proceeds have been decided 25% to a sudden infant death syndrome type charity, 25% to a endrocrine disorder support group charity, remaining 50% is up for grabs which is what the current vote is about.

    Raffle is not available yet, but it will be paid by paypal when the charities have been sorted. All will be above board, winning ticket will be decided by the top premium bond ticket on a certain week or similar.

    Gotya, UFB. Now I understand where the 'mountain rescue' thing came from. Keep us posted once the finer details are sorted out.
    Cheers.
     
  5. Great idea UFB. Like Maz says, keep us informed.

    sho' thang ain't no doubt
     
  7. UFB, i've sent you a PM and also replied to the beginners thread as i hadn't seen this one.

    you'll be better off going for a suggested donation as advance raffle tickets can only be £2 or less and you'll need tickets printed, etc.

    PM me if you need any help or have any questions.

    I'm not a regular user on this forum, but yeah, the more publicity it could get the better. It's looking like the draw will be on the March premium bonds, rather than Feb, this is to give folks time to recover financially from Christmas.
