The new season is just a couple of weeks or so away. Time then to launch, back by popular (well ish) demand, this seasons Charity Prediction Competitions.
First up the score prediction comp. @railwaysteve will be along (hopefully) in the near future to launch his competitions.
Scoring is unchanged (details post two https://gasroom.org/discussion/6110/annual-charity-prediction-competitions#latest) but although it looks complicated, don’t worry, just predict the score of each Wycombe league game on this board and I’ll do the rest.
We have supported Wycombe Homeless Connection for the last three seasons. This year though, I would like to change it up by supporting a different charity.
Suicide is a silent killer. It is the biggest killer of all of males under 45.Yet males in particular are bad at talking and asking for help. Look around the hopefully packed to capacity Adams Park at the first game of the season and at the happy excited faces. Yet sadly it is statistically likely that by the end of the season two people in that opening day crowd will have chosen to end their life. One may be that nice lad that stands or sits next to you and that you say hello to each week that suddenly is no longer there.
This year we aim to help to do something about that. Every day the Samaritans take around 10,000 calls, emails and soon webchats from people in need of help. There will be a volunteer available 24/7 to answer those contacts whenever they are needed but money is needed to fund heating, telephone, rates, etc. etc. etc. costs to allow them to do so. Calls are distributed nationally so a caller from HW is as likely to be answered in Truro as he/she is in Aberdeen. Each branch raises its own funds to pay those costs. I would like to help my local branch answer more calls and hence save more lives.
To enter the competition please donate at least £10 via https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/gasroomfundraising
I would be really really grateful if you would consider playing this season and encouraging as many of your friends and relatives to do so too. Thanks for reading.
