    Just an honest poll

    So you recommend someone... Or several folk to fun. Would you like to see £1 go towards a charity. I would...Is that me just being a typical scot or what!

    Great idea but I'm not sure how it would work in practice. :)

    And which charity?

    Any... Just in principle if you have got someone to subscribe by flyer, word of mouth, whatever...surely more than one can benefit? Jims on a win win so cant a charity benefit too?

    I know I have told quite a few people about FUN. Including the people who were pitched next to us at Combe Martin. They had just bought an older van (suffix "Y" on the registration plate) which they knew nothing about and had a lot of questions.

    Charity is a personal thing, I don't think it should be mixed with business. It's hard enough getting people past 5 posts already :LOL:

    Sounds like it could get confusing. Maybe when we recommend peeps to fun and they seem full of thanks and are pleased, we can say, 'if that's helpful, would love if you would pop a pound into whatever charity you want'. That way if they do they do, if they don't they don't. No-one has to have a headache :)

    I think the op meant that Jim donates £1 to charity for every new Funster recomended by one of us ,a kind of finders fee that a charity benefits from.
    I think its a good idea .

    I'm pretty sure Jim already gives generously of his own accord (y)

    I think it would just lead to unessasry complications, and to be honest I think Jim has enough to think about with Katie poorly and Sàin just out of hospital.
    I am sure we all have our own personal charities that we donate to and Fun has has a charity each year that is supported. Just my thoughts.:)

    I am happy with paying the £15 that covers Jim's costs and would be unhappy paying 16 so that £1 could go to charity some of the time.

    I agree but that wasnt the general thing I was thinking of. its not 24/7 Jims circumstances , maybe right now but not normally. £1 to a charity whichever one wouldnt go amiss if a subscriber did so on a recommendation. Win win is it not?

    I'm sure plenty of people have come to FUN on my recommendation BUT I don't ever recall anyone actually saying they joined because of me. So how would this be managed? As I said Jim already gives to charity so why complicate things

    I just think it would be too complicated to administer Sandra.

    Well sorry... everyone... Ive got to disagree. Im not saying a certain charity...just A charity rather than just @Jim

    If you make the effort to try and recruit AND succeed then a £1 donation shouldnt go amiss.,,ugh woof woof tree. Straws say no more.

    £1 is not worth the effort to administer. Theres nothing to stop you paying their pound if you'll feel better for it (y)
