Well the quiet Monday came and went.

Still no replies from the grown ups.

Guess they have reverted to type and are now just ignoring us and hope that we will all get bored and go away....

So  nice to see the marketing masterminds have been hard at work.

I did a little bit of (admittedly theoretical) maths.

If EB umbrella are donating £20 to the Benevolent Fund for every fleece sold that is probably 50% of the profit (very generous of them too)

Assuming the trust has got the same deal from EB umbrella.  The profit margin on each fleece will be about £45.

50% of the profit will earn them £22.50 or £12,555.00 once they have sold all 558.

That should keep the webstore manager, his assistant, the admin manager, her assistant, the remote stock sales manager, his assistant, the admin manager at Doncaster, his assistant and the Engineering director plus the crop of consultants and contractors that are still klinging on in tea and biscuits for a few weeks.

It's starting to get cool now so I would think that they can all huddle around the heating system they had installed into the warehouse at Doncaster (to keep the pallets of unsold books warm) and discuss their next marketing masterplan.

The heating system is automatic and set to 20 degrees.  We used to go in and switch it off as the warehouse was like a sauna and the thing was making a greater contribution to global warming than 558 on an engine run.  Wonder who is keeping an eye on it now?

I hope that they are taking Pre-Orders because if they have already made 558 of them I suspect that they will be left with over 500 unsold !

If it's that exclusive I'm surprised there's a need to include a free rugby ball. £90 is extremely steep even for a 'limited edition' but I wonder where they expect to find 558 punters anyway.

so is the merchandise now being priced to be aimed at the rich minority, justthe same as the tours?

No mention of how much of the £90 will go to VTST that I can see.
If you look on the bottom of the page on the VTTS Store page, you'll see that they're being done by 'EB Umbrella'.
On the RAFBF website :
Quote
EB Umbrella is proud to present these fantastic limited edition garments individually designed in support of the RAF Benevolent Fund.
(snip)
Each fleece in the range costs £80 and comes in five different sizes, and EB Umbrella will donate £20 to the RAF Benevolent Fund for every fleece sold. Only 50 of these limited edition garments will be sold per design.

So in the case of the one done for VTST, do we assume that the donation will also be £20 ( despite it costing £10 more....or is that because the VTST one includes a 'free' ball  ;) ) ?
