Geraldine has said that I may post the following -

On September 14th, my son, Matt Warren, will be abseiling from the roof of St Pancras Station. He is endeavoring to raise donations for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. His father served in the Royal Marines. It would please me no end if just a few of you lovely lot would care to support him. The website for donating online is -

Blue it, soop.

Butter How?

Go the the bottom of the thread.
On the right column, under Links, it will show you how.

...and just a little point - is there supposed to be an 0 after Warren?

I think that I've done as Butter suggested. This is the website if any of my lovely comrades would like to sponsor my son, Matt Warren.

soop Thu 26-Jul-12 17:05:33

...and yes, there is a 0 after the name. I think that you're such good-hearted bunch...flag

I've gone all misty eyed. A big thankyou and an even bigger grin

My son has just sent an email. He's bowled over that you have responded so quickly and generously. Hearts of gold, springs to mind. sunshine

Matt has sent another email [wow!] to say thank you for your support. I like this game. I get to hear from him twice in the space of an hour. He's very chuffed. I'm so pleased. I'll check in again at lunchtime tomorrow. smile
I have to close down now. First thing tomorrow I'm to have my breasts clamped tight in a vice. All in a good cause, as you ladies know only too well. It don't 'alf 'urt though! hmm

Done - it is a very easy site to use.

Is it mandatory to say that we've donated?
The thought never crossed my mind....confused

Greatnan Thu 26-Jul-12 19:04:11

Pour encourager les autres. Why not - it will make soop happy.

Anagram Thu 26-Jul-12 19:10:11

Yes! smile

Have just read my emails. Yet another from Matt. It is to be passed on to you lot...
' Dear Gransnetters, THANK YOU. Iam truly grateful for your kind words and extremely generous donations. It really is hugely appreciated. You are WONDERFUL. Matt'

May I add that I also think you are the cream of the crop. So it's thank you from him...and it's a massive thank you from me. flag
