Charity Challenge

On the 7th June on our forum I launched our Charity Challenge and Fundraiser for MIND, a Mental Health Charity supporting Blue Light Responder Services.
The Challenge will start July the 1st and run until the 31st when the Raffle will be drawn live on here as usual.
For each day of the challenge I will conduct 31 press ups a day with 31 kilos (68.3 pounds) on my back for 31 days of July.
At the end of the challenge I will be donating all the money to MIND. As usual a running total will be posted on here regularly and all transactions with the Charity will be posted for you all to see.

On the 31st of July live on here I will draw the charity raffle for which there are some absolutely outstanding prizes from our Trusted Traders, they are listed at the bottom of the page.

Here’s the part you need to get right otherwise it’s a lot of hassle for me 😬
Tickets are £5 donation to the charity a strip. Please send the money via PayPal 👉🏻FRIENDS & FAMILY 👈🏻 or there is a fee and frustratingly the Charity misses out on some cash due to the fee.
PayPal address is :

Smiler1980@icloud.com

💥 When you make payment leave your forum name!!! And the words CHARITY DONATION
So I can find you to send you a PM with pics of your tickets! If you don’t I won’t be chasing you trying to work out who you are, these events get super busy and I don’t have time, so if you could also drop this profile a pm that makes my life so much easier sending the tickets 👍🏻
Tickets are normally sent out at the end of each day when I get time to sit and write them out keep an eye on your Messenger app🤓

And finally thanks again for your amazing support. Chris 👍🏻
