Yes I have an interest, a son who has done 2 x tours in 'stan with the RAF. On one tour he was on the medivac Chinook as a door gunner for a while. Reckons he will never forget the fantastic dedication he saw from the medics involved and he tirelessly tries to raise the profile of SSAFA, Royal British Legion, Help For Heroes etc.

Trouble is they are ALL worthy causes and they ALL deserve our patronage.

How about supporting the top THREE charities in this poll for 3 months each?????????
Thats a little unfair as
A- we dont collect enough money to share between 3 charities and B- its unfair to the charities that are lower in the Alphabet
They all deserve a chance
In fairness to Mrplodd I think he mean't the three charities that polled the most votes - not the first three on the above alphabetical list.
Oh sorry I have read that wrong so sorry
Well at least my mistake has bumped it up
