CH Forum Donations/Finance update

Last updated here:- 12th August 2015
I've absorbed the costs over the last couple of years, but would be great if we have the same great response we've had in the past, and some generous contributors help to fund the running costs. Just a reminder that I make NO PROFIT from this, it's all about covering the costs if we can.

THE BALANCE TODAY to be OK for the next year, and catch up:- -£200

A big thank you to everyone who's kindly donated previously - 48 members have donated so far, with amounts ranging between £5 and £100 (wow!), and I'd like to thank everyone for their kind donations, on behalf of the Forum membership.

Rough costs of running the forum, including domain-name registration and hosting = £150 per year.

HOW TO DONATE - three options:-

:arrow: Direct bank transfer into my bank account - Private Message me ([PM button in my profile on the left) or email me at, and I'll reply with details.
:arrow: Send a cheque to me direct - Private Message me (PM button in my profile on the left) or email me at and I'll reply with a postal address to send a cheque to.

Alternatively you can do it instantly, by debit/credit card:-

:arrow: Paypal - YOU pay a small Paypall fee, on top of your donation. Pay to on paypal.
1. Go to the personal payments page on PayPal -
2. Enter "" into the "To" box.
3. Enter YOUR email address in the "From" box.
4. Enter an amount.
5. Choose "GBP - British Pounds" in the currency.
6. Click on the "Personal" tab, and choose "Gift"
7. Click "Continue"
8. Follow the instructions, either to create a Paypal account, or to login.

:arrow: Paypal - CH Forum pays the fee, coming off the amount you donate. Pay to on paypal.
Click on this button to donate. NB:- the fee is deducted from your donation - see note above for FREE way of doing it):- ... et=UTF%2d8
NB:- You DON'T need a Paypal account to use Paypal - just click on the "Continue" next to "Don't have a PayPal account?

" on the left once you've followed the link.

:!: It is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY to contribute to the costs of the forum - nobody should feel obliged to donate.
:!: Costs will be kept to an absolute minimum (mainly just hosting/domain costs, with a contingency allowance for increased bandwidth/usage provision)
:!: Any surplus donations will be held to fund future years, unless excessive in which case they will be donated to the CHOBA ( periodically (this hasn't ever happened to-date).

Any questions with the above then don't hesitate to email me at
