The DaveP Memorial Charity Auction Forum


Distinguished Member
It seems that we have a significant membership that doesn't stray too far from General Chat & so may have missed the news of the sudden death of member DaveP. In Dave's memory we have set up an auction forum to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, as nominated by Dave's widow, Cherryl. Please take a few minutes to visit the forum (link now dead).

Some items currently on offer:

Amstrad E-mailer
Davis DL450 Projector
Sennheiser CX300 Headphones

All payments go directly to the BHF in the form of a Gift of Hope Fund, again in Dave's memory. You can view the fund total & make a donation here. By paying direct to the BHF it's possible to Gift Aid the donation which boosts the donation by 28% courtesy of Gordon Brown.

Total raised to date (23/07/06) - £502.56

Now here's a thought - current forum membership stands at 119,985 registrations. If each of us can find just £1 to donate, with Gift Aid the fund would stand at over £150k!

As Heather Small says "What have YOU done today to make you feel proud?"

As we suspected, this was down to a glitch in the BHF system. You donation is now registered on the DaveP Gift Of Hope page.

Thanks for both the donation & the time spent resolving the problem. :smashin:

The curent total of the fund is:


However, we have a problem. All donations received to date are pretty much sold out. With nothng to sell, we can't raise any more money. :(

Please have a think about things you may have lying around that are no longer required that you would be prepared to donate to the cause. DVDs you will never watch, games you will never play, PC parts that have been upgraded. etc, etc. :smashin:
