CarpForce signed chewing gum machine charity raflle!
Charity news from Germany just came in. Something with a cool chewing gum machine and lots of 'known anglers' signatures including yours truly's! Read below.
The chewing gum machine from the CarpForce stand is going under the hammer!!!
"This chewing gum machine has a cool story! It hung as a decorative item in the stage set of the show "Oh Läck Du Mir", a musical in Switzerland. Afterwards, my mate Robby, who looks after the CarpForce stand, gave it to me as a present, filled it with boilies and hung it up on our stand. Alan Blair was the first person to sign it in Den Bosch, which marked the beginning. Peter Schwedes, Marian Sura and Maui Kaulbach, the Carpy guys, were the next to sign the machine and then it all took off very quickly."
Because we wanted to do something really cool with the box, CarpForce decided to raffle it off for a good cause!
"In the meantime, well over twenty well-known guys who shape and promote our hobby have signed it. What particularly impressed me was that we didn't have to persuade anyone, everyone was totally enthusiastic straight away. That shows me that no matter who works for which company and who is sponsored by whom, we are all somehow in the same boat! In the end, we all have the same passion anyway. We were all pleased to see that this cohesion for our hobby really does exist at the end of the day! We are donating all the money raised from this raffle to the Löwenherz e.V. outpatient children's hospice service in Osnabrück. I don't need to explain to anyone what a hospice service does... It's all the sadder that something like this is needed even for the youngest children who didn't even have the chance to live their lives."
