ISM raises £2,250 for Models for Heroes

International Scale Modeller (ISM) raised £2,250 for Models for Heroes on Friday the 30th of July during an online auction of donated scale model kits. 

The event was LIVE on youtube as part of the Friday Night Live show run by Paul Bretland of ISM and the ISM team.  It was predicted before the show that £1,000 could be raised and bidders were asked to dig deep.  One kit, only worth around £30 went for £100.  By the end of the night the total had well exeeded expectations and the ISM team were speechless.

Malcolm from Models for Heroes was watching and taking part in the chat and was thankful for the generousity and support that the modellers have shown for Models for Heroes. 

"ISM raised more in one night for us than we have raised oursleves since we began" Malcolm said.  The amount rose even after the auction as the donors that were auctioning off the kits began to also donate the cost of the postage to the cause too.
