:thumbs_up: :clap: :clap: so very generous! Now getting that bakkie over here and transferring the steering wheel and trannie over to Canadian roads will be :shock:

We'll have to settle on our own little contributions from this side of the pond :roll:

Good luck to all ticket holders! :clap: :clap:

I know the 4x4 trailer was donated by an Honorary Ranger. Not sure about the vehicle?

What a wonderful innitiative :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well done HR :clap: :clap: :clap:
Well done Mazda :clap: :clap: :clap:
Well done Desert Wolf :clap: :clap: :clap:

It has been extensively advertised on Radio 702, tickets are going fast I would advise you to send in an application asap. I am pretty sure that this will sell out by the end of today. It is a wonderful prize for a wonderful cause. 8)
