Weʼre raising £1,200 to cover the annual cost of running the forum. It's a continual ask until we find a sponsor. No money being made, just keeping the lights on!
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I have chatted about football with fans of all clubs since BBC606.
I saved this forum when it fell into disrepair and run it free of charge with lots of support from Mark.
But to keep it up and running there are core costs and we need to find money to deal with that. Hosting, Upgrades, fault fixing etc.
I hope the membership can support us with regular donations until we are able to finds a benefactor - advertising or other.

All, Many thanks for your support. We now have £867 donated from 45 supporters. Still a tad short of the full £1,200 that we need to cover 12 months on the new platform. BUT I have made the commit and we have moved and you should see that benefit, stability. I'll cover any shortfall (currently £333) if we can't persuade our fellow members to contribute. We'd prefer not to ask for money from the members and so if any of you know a business that might like to sponsor the site for £1,200 per season - then we would love to hear from them.

Funding seems to have stalled a little Stairs - hope this further donation from the Baggieman helps it re-start!
