Other funding

We would also like to mention the many donations given to us over the years from groups whom we have given talks to, and from members of the public who have just put money in our collecting tin, most have been anonymous but you know who you are... Thank you very much indeed for your continuing support!

Not funding per se, but certainly supportive:

Last and certainly not least, the gracious support from Nigel Peck who helped us enormously with the previous incarnation of our website and the original development of this website, which was above and beyond the call of duty.
