Ginger Ninja Appreciation Society - badges for charity

Recommended Posts

This has received a lot of traction on Twitter but for those forum members who don’t use Twitter I wanted to share this.

The background is that Jen Bellamy, one of our regular podcast panel members, christened Harrison Reed the Ginger Ninja on one episode in a sort of throwaway line. When I went to Brockhall for Episode 100 of the pod, I also managed to grab a few words with Harrison Reed & shared with him the hashtag history & he said he was aware of it...

Well one thing led to another...Jen designed a logo for the society...then she gauged interest in having some badges made up, proceeds to charity...then Ryan Grant spoke with Harrison & found out he had a pet charity...

& So Jen crowdfunded the cost of manufacture, has had them made & will be selling them alongside Scott Sumner of 4000 Holes magazine fame, who will also be selling his latest edition...at the junction of Kidder St & Nuttall St tomorrow afternoon from 2pm.

 

She is rightly excited & I for one am mightily impressed at the initiative & enthusiasm involved and the fact it raises money for a charity adopted by one of our players is just the icing on a rather splendid cake...

 

So....please drop by tomorrow & buy one...or two...that’s basically the gist 👍🏻

My daughter and myself bought them. Great idea to raise charity funds. 👍

Thanks Riversider... Jen has done a terrific job - apparently some of the first ones sold on Saturday were to Harrison Reed’s mum !

On the 4000 holes in blackburn  website they are sold out.

Great effort. If you get anymore in let me know. I'd order 2.

Have to say, although I probably won't be buying one, that's a terrific design. Props to this Jen lady.

Hopefully he appreciates it and it helps us nab him permanently!

Can't get more? They seem rather popular.

I think the premise was an initial ltd edition run to generate demand...which it did...to raise money for the charity as opposed to it being an ongoing commercial operation.

i think it’s fair to say the response has been overwhelming & a number of people, me included, have said we should consider doing ones for other players in a similar vein.

if we can persuade Jen then watch this space 😉

Brilliant design. I'd deffo buy a few if more were produced. 

Hope Jen has the time/help to design a few more for different players past and present.
