I believe that there has been some tradition of supporting a charity at the Cherbourg dinner, a hat being passed around where everyone has always generously given. (something to do with timing I think, they've had enough to drink, but still have some money left! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

Last year there was a wonderful response for 5girlsinaboat the year before was for (I think) McMillan nurses.

So who is going to nominate a charity this year, and what shall it be?

perhaps CLIC? A very worthwhile cause....

There are obviously hundreds or even thousands to choose from.

Personally, I prefer that we have a connection - the first year it was for McMillan because forumite Fill had a very personal reason, and Ken did a briliiant job of raising funds. It was intended to be a coffee morning collection but became a great deal more than that.

Last year was for 5girls in a boat, as EtapOwner had a close connection.

So if there is anything which we can relate to will get much more enthusiasm and support, IMVHO.

I wouldn't argue with that Nick...
