Sponsorship and donations

This website is NOT a commercially run outlet, it relies on volunteers and the good will of donors to keep it running.

Without volunteers and donations this site would not be able to continue to exist, and certainly not be advertisement free (unlike some other advert heavy websites).

Our main expenses are the hosting cost and we believe our volunteers should one day receive a payment for their work.

Please consider making a goodwill donation however small (or large) by clicking here.
