Just to let you all know that if you've sold summat for a decent price on here, or you regularly sell stuff, that the Forum is still accepting donations to the Jimmy Mizen charity.

 

All donations are greatly appreciated.

I have just been told that the Jimmy MIzen fund is no longer active so we're looking for suggestions for another good charity, if anyone wants to recommend one.

I think a good cause would be a lifesaving charity like RNLI we have a link with shoe repairs as well, soles......

We will get 4 or 5 charities in a list, and open it up to a vote. Whoever has the most votes will become the forum charity for the next 12 months (we can do a re-vote every 12 months). Everyone happy with that?

Are you sure that the Jimmy Mizen charity is no longer active ?

http://forjimmy.org/fundraise/

It would seem that all that is not working is the Virgin Money giving page. Is this because of the change to City Safe ?

Hi. The charity is still active, but the forum justgiving page is no longer active. Apparently the virgin money pages are only valid for 2 years at which point they close down. Instead of starting a new one we are giving the whole forum a chance to select a charity of their choice. If they choose the Jimmy Mizen foundation again then that is what we will support for the next 12 months. We will conduct a vote week commencing 26th June on the charities nominated on this thread. Whoever gets the most votes will become the forum charity for 12 months.

Don't we have a charity of our own, for fellow repairers fallen on hard times?

I seem to remember one in the distant past.

So why can't we promote our own charity?

Seems counter productive to promote our own charity then donate to another.

Hi. As mentioned earlier everyone will have the opportunity to vote for the forum's charity. Footwear friends will be added to the list for people to vote for.
