Not sure if there is much of a kitty - if any. But as a suggestion is it worth adding a quid or so to all future kit orders for such things - assuming kits orders all go through the same person? I know this may be seen by some as verging on a membership fee, but i'm sure Schmunks, Barley et al must end up being out of pocket on badges, tattoos etc all the time, which they give away at Pirate events. A slush fund could be used to pay foe these as well?? Just a though - and any surplus can be spent on essential like beer!!
Schmunks - sorry of this will give you more work!!
