In case you had forgotten, i made a pledge that if RBR didnt score a win this season i would give £100 to charity.

Well after some pretty gutting news this weekend i have decided to split the money..

£50 is going to the stroke association
£25 is going to Kent Air Ambulance

and the final £25 is going to a charity of your choice.

Write a short reason why i should give the final portion to your favoured charity and i will pick what i think is the most deserved.

Anyone posting negative comments about someone else's favoured charity will lose my vote instantly.

I will get the money donated by christmas time.


Over to you....

Something that I feel is a deserving cause is a charity that aids children who are in a position of having to care for their ill or disabled parents aswell as still carry on going to school and being a child with no help.....they are the main carer (in this country).....They get hardly any help from the welfare state and £25 towards one of these would help towards a child being able to be a child and get the assistance they deserve. Will look up the charity for you if needed xx

We Luv you for being so bloody decent Mito....whatever you choose do with the cash x

They were here long before any roads were built....now if most people hit a fox, badger or deer on said roads they drive off leaving the animal to die a slow death or possibly maimed for life.

Wildlife Aid Deals with over 12,000 wildlife incidents a year, they are one of the U.K's largest wildlife rehabilitation centres, with a rate of returning animals to the wild of over 70%, they are probably one of the most successful.

Mass immigration was the way that the Labour Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural and rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date. Mr Neather defended the policy, saying mass immigration has 'enriched' Britain and made London a more attractive and cosmopolitan place.

Firstly, Mito I applaud you. I don't have a favorite charity but anything that gets spent on underprivileged kids would get my vote.
For HOOKY, I am pleased to say KiD and I saved a deer from destroying itself over the weekend. They are currently building a bypass round the village where we live. We took a walk over the weekend and decided to walk through the woods next to the new bypass, when we spotted a deer that was trapped on the roadside of the fence, which it kept crashing into, in an attempt to get back to the woods. (In Sweden etc. they build fences to stop animals from wandering across in front of motorists). Luckily we found a gate and herded the deer towards it so that it could return to its natural environment. (My god am I getting soft in my old age), but it felt good to see it bound off in sheer delight. 8) 8) 8)

Is there any kind of motorsport related charity you could donate money to? say for marshalls and such, I think that would be quite fitting (:

Always loved the way he told me how crap a driver I was. But still loved Crash better. For me any charity will do, as long as it goes to who needs it. Let me know who you choose, and I will back it up with the same amount. If it goes to kids then I will be pleased. 8) 8) 8)
