Pounds for points for foodbank.

There always someone looking for a negative angle on things.

i genuinely made a bit of a fun post on Monday challenging the team with the hope of raising a few quid for the FoodBank.

Ive done this before with goals meaning donations to the NorthBank.

The donation was made on behalf of the website, not me personally. The site raises a wee bit every month through advertising and this is me giving back.

I didn’t ask anyone else to join in, but it completely blew up and before we knew it 500 had joined in and pledged.

After getting spanked on Weds night with the wind taken out our sails a wee bit I opted to just go ahead and open the donations page early.

A few days on and £2K already guaranteed in donations.

Im proud of that, and desperately hope we get thousands more.

I’ve spoken to Ian today as I’ve been very surprised by some of the stuff that’s been written about this. 

He’s someone I know well and I’ve always found him to be a really nice bloke so I’m not entirely sure where this has all come from tbh!

Hopefully I’ve clarified things with him and put his mind at ease. This was never supposed to be anything but a positive but you know, negativity is never far away.


It's come from alcohol. This sort of incoherent rant of his always does follow a heavy session.

Charity is such a weird topic

Someone doesn't give to charity - "what a selfish arsehole"

Someone gives to charity "they are doing it the wrong way" 

You cannot win :lol: 


At least the recipients of the Charitable giving receive the help intended. A great initiative that sprouted wings and flew. Well done Div and all who have contributed. A number of people's christmases will be brighter as a result.

What an outstanding achievement.


Well done SIr, well done indeed.


PS I read the thread, the human race is a strange old thing.  So many good things going on and one massive bell end.  I suppose the character scrooge has to be based on someone!!!

Oh and I forgot to add


Merry Christmas every Buddie, Merry Christmas every Buddie indeed
