Where does the money come from?

We take a lot of time to show where the money goes (GOES?) Well, it's mostly your money.
We do more than coming round to you rattling a collecting box! Apart from from your very generous donations (still waiting for HMCR to stump up the Gift Aid) we have used Ebay and Amazon quite a lot over the last twelve months. We're trying to empty the shed and fill the GOES Co-op account. Why the Co-op? It has very good green credentials AND the travel insurance, which we had thought would be massively expensive after our health took a plunge last year, was very reasonable.
Amazon we using for books; sometimes take several weeks, months even, to sell but sell they do.
Ebay takes me a little longer to organise but has brought in much needed funds. Old curtain poles, a canoe, all sorts sell. Even my beloved but old two-stroke scooter pootled off to a new home.
The news letter is taking a while to produce chiefly owing to the printer having a hissy fit. I hadn't noticed - I'm colour blind - but photographs were turning out pictures of people with green faces! All will be well, soon ...
