The OTG nominated charity

We thought that it would be a good idea that OTG should have a nominated charity to support.
There are many worthy causes but for personal reasons we would like it to be Leukaemia Research.
http://www.lrf.org.uk/
We will be announcing several methods of fundraising but we are very open to other suggestions and to members doing their own thing if they wish.
There will be a paypal donate button at the top of the forum and a designated bank account for the charity.

To start the ball rolling we have commissioned 150 Over the Gate 2009 calendars. We'll post a example when we have them.
The calendars will be available to members for 1.50 each which includes P&P to your address
The cost of the calendars is being covered by ourselves and the whole of the 1.50 will go to Leukaemia Research.

Mogs and Danndans have come up with a splendid idea of members holding synchronised BBQs throughout the length and breadth of the country. A small donation from each participant could be another way of raising funds.

We are also arranging to have OTG caps and t-shirts etc made available to members with this discreet logo.

Please note that the gate is firmly shut.

This is the place to lodge your more sensible suggestions as well.

How about sew on badges sporting the OTG logo as well?. Got a few spaces left on my shooting vest!
bodger

I'm sure that we could have the logo done onto coloured material that you could then sew onto your jacket.

Today, we've sent off for six baseball caps and six beanies as a bit of a trial run. It will be interesting to see how they come out.

Just had a phone call to say that the embroidery has been done and that the hats are going to be posted to us in the morning. Just got to work out a price which includes a donation to our forum charity.
There will be photo on here as soon as we get them. The lady whose doing the embroidery says that they are of good quality.

I've registered an account with paypal and will hopefully be putting a donate button on the site this weekend

The Country File Calender is going to cost 9.95 each. The OTG one, is going to cost less that a quarter of that and 100% of the money will be going to charity.

Well she aint gonna say they're a pile of crap, is she.

Dark Green one please.
bodger

If they were, then this lady would definately say so.

Its taken a bit longer to work out how to do it than we anticipated , but at last our 'Donate' button has appeared over night. Now that its here, folks will be able to purchase OTG merchandise. All proceeds will, as we've said go to the forums nominated charity.
Hopefully, in the next week or two the OTG calenders and hats will arrive.
The button wasn't there last night when we went to bed, so many thanks to Rob C who must have been burning the midnight oil.
bodger

Thanks to our first donation, we now have a fiver in the kitty. We hadn't really thought of members simply donating to Leukaemia Research but thats obviously fine.
The calenders are being chased up and the hats should arrive today.
