If this is not allowed on the forum Mods please feel free to remove.

My daughter suffers from MS. Even though she works for the NHS in England she has been turned down for HSCT treatment as she is not yet bad enough. She has had multiple different treatments over the last 9 years but none have stopped this illness progressing. She has decided to go privately to Mexico which has a good record of providing this life altering treatment but the costs are quite considerable. She is running a go-fund-me campaign and my wife and I will of course be paying the balance. So I am offering one of my better unstarted kits from the stash to be raffled amongst anyone who contributes, regardless of size of donation, on https://www.gofundme.com/help-clare-stop-ms
Just message or PM me a screenshot of the confirmation and your name will go into the hat for draw to be held at the next Dublin meeting.

I know not everyone is into modern armour but your support would be appreciated.

Quick change of plan. I have been offered 3 further kits to be raffled and have emailed my fellow Committee members for permission to actually do a proper raffle at the Nationals next month. So I’m not doing it as above but if anyone does want to donate on Clare’s go-find-me that would be appreciated

I'd be happy to donate Sean.

Will buy a few raffle tickets too.

Are you also happy to accept (decent) kits for the raffle as prizes?

I hope your daughter has a successful outcome to her treatment!

Hi Sean,

My own sister has M.S. so I have some idea of what you’re going through.

I’d like to donate this kit if you’d like it?

Revel 1:35 Jagdtiger

All the runners are still sealed, and there’s some Eduard PE in the box as well. I could bring it to the IPMS Nationals if that suits, I’d have it there on the Saturday morning?

Let me know, thanks...
