Chris Bowen is taking part in Movember ... growing a 'tash
to raise funds for men's health and save lives. Here is a message from Chris,
explaining what it's about. If anyone wants to support him with a small
donation that would be greatly appreciated:
Have you noticed that I look a bit
different lately? I'm growing my moustache for 30 days and it's not just a bold
fashion statement. I'm doing it to raise funds for the Movember Foundation, and
I need your support:
I'm supporting the
Movember Foundation because they’re tackling some of the most significant
health issues faced by men. Your donations will help them stop men dying too
There are two ways you can contribute to
my Mo growing effort:
1) Donate online at https://mobro.co/kristfa?mc=5
2) Or, write a cheque
to 'Movember' referencing my registration ID (7797317) and mail it to:
PO Box 68600, Movember Europe, London EC1P 1EF
Learn about the
important work Movember is funding and the impact your donation will have: http://uk.movember.com/programs/cause?mc=5
There's a lot riding
on this moustache, so thank you. I appreciate your support.
The lovely 'M', aka Marie
Smith, is doing a skydive to raise money for cancer. For those who don't
know, 'M' is a cancer survivor and continues her fight against the disease.
Please will you stand by her in her fight and offer a little sponsorship? Thank
P.S. At the moment, one NewZzealand dollar is worth about 50p. If anyone wants
to donate but prefers to use PayPal or doesn't want to give their credit card
details, you are welcome to send the donation to the Starbase and I will make
sure it gets to Marie.
diagnosed with stomach cancer 3 and half years ago now. Chemo, stomach removed
and further chemo I'm still here fighting, despite being given a 15% chance of
surviving five years.
I'm over half
way through the years I was given but I'm not letting them stop me. With the
help of my loving partner I've been working on my bucket list and a parachute
jump has always been up there ever since I saw my Dad do his first jump.
So when the
Cancer Society Canterbury - West Coast Division put up about their Jump for
Cancer 2017, I knew this was a cause I had to support.

The Starbase 24 Charter
mission of Starbase 24 is to provide a friendly, fun Star Trek
experience and to promote the ideals of fellowship and charity promoted
by Gene Roddenberry’s vision.
Aims & Objectives:
raise funds via our annual banquet and other fundraising measures to
assist existing charities working in two main areas:
Welfare: To help relieve suffering and improve the lives of people
living with cancer and to inspire others to do the same.
- Animal Welfare: To assist with the relief
of animal suffering.
help educate the public on the issues of importance to both charity
offer support and assistance to other charities/good causes on an ad
hoc basis depending on need at the time.
provide a free and accessible place for anyone to discuss Star Trek
and/or related subjects and to ensure that our community, whether
online or in the real world, remains a safe, welcoming and fun place
that is family friendly and free of bullying, harassment and
discrimination on grounds of religion, ethnic origin, gender/sexuality
reach out and form friendships with other
like-minded Star Trek and Sci-fi groups/clubs, both here in the UK and
across the world and to take part in fun, collaborative projects with
other groups which achieve mutual goals.
We enjoy good
relations with almost every fan club in the UK and even some beyond,
and we will happily consider collaborating on any Star Trek fan
project. However, we do not wish to become a permanent part of a larger
fan club, and intend to retain our autonomy for the foreseeable future.
By the same
if asked we are only too happy to advise or assist you if you are
running a fan club or trying to set up an event or meeting. We are also
thankful for any promotion of Starbase 24 events, especially our
banquet. That being said, we have no desire to take over/assimilate
your club as a chapter or sub group of Starbase 24.
We have a
club, the USS Obready in the Eastern townships of Canada and enjoy
close friendships with other groups in the UK, most notably Region 20
of Starfleet International. These clubs remain completely independant
of Starbase 24 but enjoy a special friendship for the mutal support and
benefit of all involved. We are also happy to hold out the
hand of friendship to any other group or club that wishes it.
If you are a club looking for new members - or an individual looking
for a club to join, let us know and we will do our best to help put you
in touch with each other.
24 would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made this
