Hi everyone,

I need your help to secure a £2500 donation for Help for Heroes......

I am a member of a team hoping to enter this year’s Drambuie Pursuit, an endurance race being held in Scotland. If our team “Riff RAF” is voted in the top 5 we are guaranteed a place in the event, however if we have the most votes by 31st March, £2500 will automatically be donated to our charity Help for Heroes.

Please give us your support - best of all it is completely free to vote!


The Drambuie Pursuit will take place in May and will be televised on ITV4 during July. All the team members have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan in recent years and see this event as the perfect way to generate money and some much needed awareness for our wounded soldiers.

All the best,

  • Thank you to all you guys who have voted so far... We are now rapidly catching up with the team in 5th thanks to everyone who's been voting. Keep them coming in if you have a spare minute and help try and keep this post near the top of the forum to 'rally in the troops'.

    Thanks again...

    With the resounding support we've had in the last few days, top spot and a secured £2500 donation to H4H could be possible... Keep voting!

    Thank you MG for your encouraging words!!! This post is on tritalk and has been for some time. It's beginning to drum up some support; however, have had the valuable advice that it needs to be named in such a way that it encourages people to read it and follow the link as opposed to simply disregarding thinking it is spam...

    I changed the name of the thread from simply 'Drambuie Pursuit' to the 'Please Please....' (Begging post!) and it seemed to get a few more hits...

    It's just that people see charity and think I'm asking for money, or see a link, and think it's something dodgy... Any thoughts that could encourage folk to open and follow link?

    That's why I've been asking guys to make it their facebook status/tweet it/make it their signature... so that people see it and know it's legit...

    If you change your signature to say it, all past/present and future posts display it too, which is handy!!

    All thoughts and advice appreciated, and keep spreading the word...
