Unfortunately we do not have any for sale. We called in a "favour" to obtain that one that Biff now has. Best thing I should think is to speak to an Avon spares stockist!

You lot are amazing
Alex and others.

Thank you so much for your kind comments about the new tubes. We are quite proud of them and it was a real pleasure to take on a task such as this in aid of such a worthwhile cause. MacMillan are such a superb bunch of people.

Anyway on to more mundane matters, we have the set of original tubes here and, having looked at them again, I believe that they will "scrub up quite nicely" and the only really major thing that needs to be done is to remove all the old rubbing strake and replace with new. After this is done the tubes would certainly provide many years of useful life. So what I would like to do is the following:-

Restore the tubes to a good condition with new strakes etc, and then offer them to anyone for a sum of 1,500.00 plus VAT. 750.00 of this will need to be paid direct to the Just Giving web site for this project(This therefore avoids paying VAT on this part of the payment). and the balance of 750.00 paid to Henshaw Inflatables Ltd. This part of it will attract VAT at 20%.
I will also include sufficient fabric and Bostik for fitting the tubes. (If the purchaser wanted us to fit we would do this at a nominal charge)

The charity therefore benefits to the tune of another 750.00

I will await the flood of offers!!!. Of course if the purchaser wants to increase their donation to Just Giving just do so!!
