Default Helping Hands Book/DVD Sale - Friday 29th of May

Hi All,

Yes it is that time again, another book/dvd sale has been organised for Friday 29th of May - 10 am onwards, at the Lakes Club. We have tons of stock but are in need of more DVD's if anyone has any they wish to donate then either PM myself, or Meow. Smoochy Girl is in Al Barsha and donations can be dropped at her place too.

Commander - you got to come this time!! I have got that Simple Minds box set sitting here for you.

Helping Hands are working flat out, they need money and lots of it. There are literally hundreds of labourers who are needing help and support in the way of flights to their home countries or help with food etc. There is a feeding programme in situ which costs thousands to run each week. I know times are hard for all of us, and many of us have lost our jobs or are experiencing salary cuts but please dig deep and spare a bit of cash for those worse off than ourselves.

Thanks
BC

Last time we were selling the books at 5 dhs each which is a bargain anyway!! I will have to discuss reductions with the financial wizard. If you can't come I will send DVD through with Atilla to AD, you can supply the tea and biscuits.

thanks MM, we really don't need any more books, we are mobbed and have nowhere to store them, DVDs sell really well and can be easily stored afterwards.

If you can't afford to pay Dhs 5 for a book, then maybe you need to ask Helping Hands to support you.

You tight-arsed Scottish git.
