Coffers

Saw the posts offering assistance with the financing for the site - what a kind thought - thank you!

In terms of hosting the site, the costs are around 250 a year, and to date I've paid that from my own pocket, out of a (mainly altruistic!) wish to put something into the local community.

The main constraint on getting the site developed further is always time rather than money, and I do want to get all the content refreshed, fix the broken links, and get an up to date photo gallery, so if I were to have contributions from people, then I would probably use them to pay a young local guy, Chris, who is a freelance web-designer, and has worked with me on other sites, for a few hours work to freshen up the site.

So, here's what I'll do - I'll set up a page with a Paypal link for online donations, and an address for cheques, postal orders, green shield stamps, and then leave it to your kind discretion - thanks again for the kind thought.

Righty-ho Mike.  I hope a few Aussie dollars in an envelope (for you to change at the bank) will be alright.  I don't have credit card facilities and overseas money orders are ridiculously expensive.  Or if you - or anyone - can think of a better way to send money overseas, please let me know.  I'll await the details and then send a contribution - gladly.
