With a bit of a glitch where my payment couldn't be seen etc. here at last is the receipt for the cash collected in Dave Williamson's name and paid to his favourite charity the RNLI in his memory. (Dave hailed from the trawler and fishing industry in the North East of England). For newer members, a Tribute/Memorial ride across Ireland to Shanagolden where Dave had lived was organised by Roy Douglas Twwps in memory of a sadly missed member who had passed away in 2015 and 4 of us from the UK joined in on the ride. It is in my name because if paid on behalf of a group the charity cannot claim Gift Aid from the government (a further £0.25 added for every £1 donated by 'an individual'). Thanks to everyone who took part and a special thanks to certain members who couldn't make the ride but sent me a contribution anyway.
