So, can anyone, John give some kind of advice on the amount, I really have no idea how much to give, I have just had a look at my investment today and found I had up to the 18 04 2020 lost £9124.08 bloody Chinese but to date it has gained £1332.45, so all is not yet lost. Bob

I just thought about the amount of enjoyment I get from the forum and how I value that. I then considered how many active members we have and gave regard to Matthews’ cost of around £300 per annum.

Just give what you think you can afford bearing in mind that is not a "one off" thing as the website costs recur annually.
It doesn't matter if it is 50p or £500.00, all donations will be gratefully received. I think it would be beneficial to keep amounts anonymous so as to avoid the "I gave more that you, you mean s*d" syndrome.

Well, I joined in 2006 but have only posted here 66 times, hopefully I’m not considered to be an arsehole.

Donation sent.
