Thread: SD/H4H Shoot and Prize Draw 2013.

  1. #1

    SD/H4H Shoot and Prize Draw 2013.

    Stalking Directory / H4H Shoot and Prize Draw 2013.

    Shoot
    The date of this year's Stalking Directory/ H4H charity shoot at Monmouth in aid of Help for Heroes will be held on Sunday 7th July 2013. The location will be the same as the last three years which is the tunnel range at Monmouth and the format will remain similar with classes for rimfire, small deer/vermin rifle, and large deer rifle. If you are interested in attending please send me a private message with your name and an email address that I can email the details to you. There is simply too much information to send by the private message system so I need an email address. Iíll repeat that I need an email address, (every year someone asks me to send them the details via the pm system).
    Prize Draw.
    Each year we have held a prize draw which is drawn at the shoot and this year will be no exception. Previous prizes have been very good mainly due to the extreme generosity of those members of the SD site who donated, but this year we can call it a grand prize draw because the prizes offered are truly exceptional. With the first prize being a Browning X-Bolt rifle in the winnerís choice of calibre complete with a suitable moderator and neoprene sling.
    I will be supplying details of how you can purchase tickets for this draw shortly.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Following an enquiry from one of the site members about paying initial entry fees for the H4H shoot by electronic bank transfer I am looking into it and will post a reply later today. This has certain advantages such as cutting out Royal Mail with the ridiculous cost of snail mail, and also would probably far more reliable.

    What about a Just Giving account and you will be able to claim gift aid?

    I'm running out of words to thank people for their support Saddler. All I can say is brilliant, I'm sure that the winner will really appreciate the prize.

    Just an update on how to pay for entries for the shoot and prize draw tickets.
    I have looked at setting up a Just Giving account but from what I understand so far this is run by a private company that takes 5% commission on all sums donated. H4H says that this could cost them about half a million pounds a year and that they have their own company bmycharity that enables H4H to get the full benefit of all sums donated. I still have a few questions so will be looking into this further but hope that by tomorrow afternoon I will have a system in place so that all donations can be made by bank transfer direct to H4H. I will let you all know as things develop. Anyone who wants to can still send entries by post.

    I’ve just set up an account with bmycharity.com which is the system that H4H use for online payments. The advantage that this has is that payment for entries to the H4H shoot can now be made online simply by making a donation for the correct amount. No commission is paid to any outside companies such as “Just Giving” using this system and the charity gets the full benefit of your donation plus refunded basic rate of tax if you are a tax payer. I am currently updating the information to shooters information pack to include this information. If you have already received an information pack and think that you need the updated pack which simply informs you of this alternative payment method please let me know.

    The link to the online payment system is www.bmycharity.com/MonmouthSDRifleShoot
    Please email me details of any donations made using my email address which is in the shooters information pack.

    In the next week or so I will be using this system to also allow remote payment for Prize Draw tickets so as to allow those who wish to partake in the draw an easy method of payment and no payments to Royal Mail. Incidentally I have already arranged to have a stand at the Phoenix meeting at Bisley in May selling draw tickets and am hoping to do the same at a couple of game fairs in June. Let’s see if we can really do the Stalking Directory proud with our donations to H4H this year.

    Just a little bit of news. We have just been offered a bottle of port to auction in aid of H4H. This bottle is rather special as it has come from the officers mess at Hereford (22 Special Air Service) and the label clearly indicates this. It’s the genuine article, provenance is not in doubt.
    The officers have donated it on condition that it achieves a minimum of at least £100. I have said that I will guarantee that personally but I am sure that when we start the auction off and go public there will be no end of people who will be prepared to pay considerably more for something that rarely come on to the market.
