Canon give away 10,000 5d's. First come first served.

Sorry. False pretences time.



Just a gentle reminder, we are currently in the midst of the 2005 Poppy Appeal.

This Thursday at 11am, marks the 87th Anniversary of the end of World War I, where a great number of brave men fought and died.
This year also marks the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II.

So dig deep if you can, there's no one more deserving of help that someone who is prepared to die, while trying to protect the freedom and liberty of his fellow citizens.

To give you an idea of where the poppy donations are used, here are some examples (Directly copied from the 2005 Poppy Appeal website).

Quote:
* 5 would ensure that a housebound or hospitalised person receives a one hour friendship visit.
* 20 would contribute towards an emergency grant to provide essentials like food, fuel, clothing or bedding to an ex-Service person struggling to survive.
* 30 could help towards providing skilled advice and an hour's representative for a person at a Disability Allowance or War/Disablement Pension tribunal.
* 75 could help towards providing a fresh start for an ex-Service man or woman, with a place on a vocational assessment course which can help them adjust to life outside the Services and introduce them to new civilian skills.
* 230 could buy an emergency lifeline alarm for an elderly person.
* 800 could provide a severely disabled person and their carer with a much needed welfare break.
Kind Regards


In Flanders' Fields - John McRae, 1915

In Flanders' Fields the Poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders' Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high,
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though Poppies grow
In Flanders' Fields.

If I do nothing else in the year, I always always buy a poppy.
