Excellent charity work
« on: January 22, 2014, 10:29:44 pm »
I heard a rumour that you brave ladies and gentlemen are about to do something magnificent for the Cave Rescue Organisation- 24 hours in a cave as I understand.
How might one make a substantial donation to this worthy cause?

Hello Chris
You have heard correctly that we shall be undertaking a fund raising trip for CRO as part of the uni's RAG week (raising and giving), by staying  underground for 24 hours, and facing the many problems experienced in such a situation, namely canabolism.

This has shocked several students and family members and even some fellow cavers into donating to the cause of helping these underground and overground heroes. 
If you would like to help us raise money then please visit our just giving page :

On a much more serious note, we all know how important these organisations are to cavers and other outdoors folk. If anyone else out there reading this would like to help us raise money for cave rescue, please do so!

Your support is greatly appreciated

So which one of you is Madame Cholet?

Thought I would let you all know how we got on.
We had  a great trip and everything seemed to come off without a hitch aside from the van breaking down. 24 hours spent underground exploring and eating pasta bake were well spent and we have managed to raise £414 so far!
We'd all like to thank anyone on here who donated to us and I hope the guys at CRO find it useful, and continue to do the great work they do.

Thanks all

Joe
