It's that time of year when we need to pay for web hosting and forum software license renewals. The forum cost us approx £660 a year to run and we rely on donations to keep us running. Otherwise, I have to send the piggies out to work.... and they won't like that

Any donations - no matter how small - are greatly appreciated as it all helps cover the cost and it all adds up. We rely on the generosity of our community to keep us running so donations are vital to enable us to exist.

Donations can either be made by PayPal to myself details available via pm to me or by cheque made payable to myself, again pm me for address details etc... Need to make it clear this is a donation to help run the forum you are not paying for a service, the service of course is free to anyone to use, but without donations, we would find it very difficult to run due to the high cost involved.
You must be over 18 to make a donation this is not negotiable

In return you get a nice colorful banner underneath your name saying 'Forum Donator 2021/22 and the right to add a signature to your profile. Not to mention a nice warm glow inside :)for helping keep the forum running!

The past year the forum donations paid for our hosting, software license renewals, theme updates and email services, domain name, email services. This year, we will see the board being upgraded to the latest xenforo software

In the face of competition from facebook we are still holding our own and keeping our community and repository of information on guinea pigs alive and up to date making us one of the most successful active Guinea Pig Online Communities across the globe.

I will provide a full breakdown of donations received with data anonymised and how the money is spent to anyone that requests it.

Thank you once again for being part of this community and making it the place it is. On behalf of the admin team, mod team, and myself, we would like to thank you for making the past year difficult year a supportive and kind one here on the forum, you are all wonderful and I am so proud to belong to such a great community.

Thanks
Lee

How do I send a pm? 🙈

I‘d love to contribute
In the green bar next to your user name you should find a little envelope, click on that and then you can start a conversation this gives you an email. Just type sport_Billy in the recipient box and pen your message etc

I‘ve got that far now, thanks, but in the next screen I can’t see an option to start a message, sorry.
