A big thank you to everyone who donated prizes and money for the raffle that was held over the last few weeks on the forum. The raffle was kick-started by one of our long standing and much loved forum members, joe clay.

Joe has made some superb ohm-meters and recently turned his hand to making a pipe.  As you can see, it was an excellent bit of craftsmanship and he kindly offered to raffle it off with the proceeds going to charity.

The chosen charity was Rethink Mental Illness – they help people affected by mental illness in many different ways.  Pop over to their website and you will be blown away by the work that they do.

The raffle was helped massively by our moderator Rob, he is one of the most helpful and considerate members that we have on our forum and he did a stunning job of organising the event and liaising with the charity.  So hats off to you as well, Rob, this wouldn’t have had the fantastic result that it did without your time and effort!

Many of our lovely apes donated bundles of prizes to the raffle and the donations and ticket sales raised a whopping £1,300 for Rethink – we were all blown away by everyone’s generosity! Thank you to everyone who took part in this event.  

The team at Rethink sent this certificate over to say thank you - not only for the donation but also for helping to raise awareness of mental health and their organisation.

Well done to everyone involved, you make this site a credit to the vaping community!

Dave Junglist is co-owner of Planet of the Vapes and has been vaping since 2015.  He spent his early years with his head in a bass bin and was a very committed and experienced smoker.  He had his first cigarette at the age of 13 and just knew it was for him.  He did stop briefly with the aid of patches but reverted quickly and became a ‘secret’ smoker, working hard to keep his weak will from the attention of his family.  Vaping made an honest man of him and for this he is forever thankful. He has been involved in websites since completing a degree in Environmental Science in the late nineties.  At that time there was pretty much no contact with computers but on joining the regular workforce and deciding that the world-wide-web was the future he blagged his first job as a web designer and never looked back. As you would expect from a junglist, Dave likes his beats and is most comfortable when the bass is wobbly.
