Price: £5

Having a clearout, loads of guidebooks and instruction manuals that haven't used in years and am not likely to ever use again.

I tried to do this a while ago, asking for donations to Mountain Rescue but it descended into chaos. This time I will keep it simple.

1) ALL proceeds will go to Mountain Rescue.
2) Please email me with your highest bid for each book you are interested in, plus your location so I can let you know the likely postage cost.
3) I will keep "bidding" open for 2 weeks, then contact the highest bidder with payment details.
4) In the interests of complete honesty and transparency, I will transfer funds to MR by some sort of traceable means and post evidence for all to see.

Mods - I'm aware that the total value may go over £100, however as this is a donation to MR I hope it's OK. I will provide evidence that all funds raised have been donated. If this breaches the rules please let me know.

In reply to Cthulhu:

Not particularly happy about this. It really isn't the correct forum for an auction, and we certainly don't normally allow auctions on the FS forum, however I'll leave it up for the time being.

It looks like it will be a nightmare to manage.

In reply to Cthulhu:

Thanks to all of you who emailed with offers - I will reply to you over the weekend hopefully. Surprisingly, it was no hassle at all to administer - some people were outbid, others were not.

I'm working away from home a lot over the next few weeks so I may be a bit slow to reply but please bear with me. If you've sent me a message, you WILL get a reply!
