The macrib tubes are a steal for what he's asking for them. Having seen them up close and being the original Avon they still have 20 years in them and would fab with very little work...I'm sure partly why whisper chose the boat he did :-)

I can't talk for Chris but from experience when ask I quote as a ball park figure 800 per metre. I'm sure Chris would be happy for your business. He's very approachable so give him a call at Henshaws. He probably isn't the cheapest but he's right on top for quality

Just been reading some info on an email from Macmillan, it contained a link to an appeal read by Jo Brand on Radio 4. She explained about Macmillan well and also gave out some interesting figures...

30 could pay for a Macmillan Nurse for an hour and 200 could pay for a macmillan nurse for a day. So what we have been doing is making quite a difference

If you want to listen to Jo's appeal the link is here:

BBC Radio 4 - Radio 4 Appeal, Macmillan Cancer Support

And here's a link to our ribnet justgiving page:

Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

Looking forward to starting work again on the Macrib

No worries. Gramas deserves credit for agreeing to the deal and I hope he'll be pleased with the Teleflex system which I'm just off to the Post Office to post for him

I've explained what we are going to do with the account and they are happy with this, I would suggest that when you donate you put Macmillan and your RIBnet name so it will show on the statement.
I've elected to have the statements online so I can make our transactions as transparent as possible
