Charity Skirmish - Finmere - 11th May...


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


Myself and Tiptoe (Finmere Site Organiser) have been planning an extra special skirmish in May, on Sunday the 11th - The MISFITS Charity Open!


You lot are all invited!


Basically, it's a skirmish where all the profits go to Help For Heroes (www.helpforheroes.org.uk), the charity that helps to look after our wounded Servicemen and Servicewomen.


ALL the profits will go to Help For Heroes. Tippy has even managed to convince NPG (National Paintball Games) to give up the green fees!


Also, I am contacting all the major airsoft retailers and suppliers in the hope that I can convince them all to donate something that we can raffle. All contributors will be publicly named and thanked (unless they don't want to be) and I will inform everyone of the final total and provide copies of the letter of acknowledgement from Help For Heroes. The response so far have been very favourable.


The retailers/suppliers I have contacted up to now are:


6Mil Airsoft

Airsoft Armoury

Airsoft International

Airsoft Mart

Airsoft Skirmish

Airsoft Warehouse


Combat South

Fire Support


Land Warrior Airsoft

On Patrol

Zero One


Others that I have yet to get hold of:


Action Hobbies

Airsoft World

UK Tactical


If anyone can think of someone else I should contact, has any questions or would like to donate something then please email me via webadmin at misfits.org.uk .


Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved, it is very unlikely that I can collect any donations so they would have to be posted to me. However, I may be able to arrange collection up to 100 miles of Northampton if the donation is a biggy!


I will be advertising the event on all the major airsoft forums that I can. Please tell your friends or post this on any forums that you frequent.


A Roll Call thread will go up in due course on www.finmereairsoft.co.uk, along with details of prices etc. Please register there and let us know if you plan to attend.


So, come along and bring your generous heads and fat wallets!


Many thanks in hopeful anticipation of your attendance and generousity,


Kind regards,

:rifle: Sean

Ask people have already asked...


If anyone wants to donate but can't attend, I have zero'd my Paypal account so that you can send a donation there. I will post who has donated what (after any PP fees), along with a running total and then a final total after the skirmish.


I fully understand if people are wary of this and don't want to give, but if you do, my paypal addy is:


pinheadsk AT lycos.co.uk


Please title any donations 'Help for Heroes' and include your forum name, your real name and the forum you frequent.
