Do you want a marine setup?

Hi folks,
I'm dismantling my marine tank, and I've live rock, a Jewel 220L tank & stand, 3 power heads, a filter, & a skimmer that's going.

As opposed to giving it away for free or charging for it, I'd prefer for someone to offer a small donation to the Irish Cancer society.

Any takers?

Kit & kaboodle will go to biggest charity donation - no offer too small)

For picture see here: www.adverts.ie/showproduct.php?product=338768

[Edit]FYI This is:
1. A Jewel Rio 240 Aquarium & Cabinate (price new at €650)
2. AquaC Remora Skimmer (price new at €150)
3. Fluval 305 Filter (priced new at €180)
4. Approx 20 Kg Fiji live rock (priced at €150)
5. Powerheads.
6. Lights.
7. White coral sand.

This is an excellent offer from Zulu for anyone interested in Marines, I really applaud your suggestion that the tank can go to the person making the highest donation to the Irish Cancer Society.
Come on lads - get your offers flooding in.

I'll start the ball rolling with €100.

I have to say Zulu fair play to you that is such a brilliant Idea and very noble of you!! It's great seeing someone in this day and age doing somethin as great as this! My dad has suffered with an beaten cancer twice if I didn't have a marine tank already I'd be bidding like there's no tomorrow! I'll make a donation on Tuesday/Wednesday anyway when I get paid!:)

If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up.

First off - thanks a million for all the support folks. I think cancer cuts close to us all at some stage or another unfortunatly.

Currently Darragh has the highest bid.

I'm going to let this run for a days - as you are all aware, a 220L tank, stand, pumps, filter, lights, skimmer, rock & coral is worth a fair chunk! So I'm sure you won't mind too much. :)

Ok, let me see if I can be of assistance, are you ok with me posting this on the staff Web pages at Dublin City University where I work?

How do you want the Donation to be administered, do you want to make the Donation yourself or do you want the recipient to do so?, I'm assuming the former.

Wow Kev, that would be great. Absolutly - the more we can get the better.

In terms of the donation, I don't mind if someone does it themselves - as long as they can scan or show a receipt as proof and that the receipt is dated correctly. So long as it goes to the legitmate cause, I'll be happy - thats the important thing.

just a thought on this, if someone makes a bid over €250 (say €251) it's tax deductible at your higher rate. So if you're on the 41% rate you'll get €102 back... And the charity still gets €250, net spend for you is only €151....

Now if only I had room for another tank....

Well said q547, but that is only for people who pay their taxes under the self-assessment system.

Under the PAYE system using your example above the €251 will be treated under the grossing up procedure as if tax at 41% had already being paid on it. This will make the donation valued at €424 after the relevant charity claims the relief themselves after a relevant form with your details is submitted to the revenue.

A good deal for the charity and rightly so.

Come on all you high earners out there!
