This is such a great idea from Brekkie and SJHoward (and thanks to Rob too for running with it). Asa has provided such a great home for us all here over the years, never asking for a penny from any of us in return. So to be able to say even a little thanks for all those years by supporting a good cause like this now is a great thing! This is definitely a community I will miss from next week.
So I donated £20 this afternoon (basically £1 for every year TVF has been in existence) that and the gov't is also contributing an extra fiver on top of that thanks to the Gift Aid scheme. It ain't much, but it is for a very worthy cause after all.
This was a really nice idea. Thank you Rob, Brekkie and Simon. And I agree, a lovely sentiment from David.
It's a illness that has sadly touched my family in a devastating way so any donation to the charity would be fantastic. Thank you to everyone who has already donated. But it is tough for a lot of people right now so obviously do not worry if you can't.
Amazing work folks to smash the £1000 barrier in 24 hours - certainly didn't expect that when I was talking the idea through with Rob just a couple of days ago. Thanks to all those who have contributed or shared the details of the fundraiser and it is great that it is going to a cause which is clearly close to Asa's heart.
