We have had a 20 donation and 5 GiftAid from my Uncle who has been a legend in looking after my Grandmother while she is fighting Cancer and lots of other things, his message reads:

'Sorry I wont be able to make Sunday. Have a safe trip and hope the sun shines on you. With our Love David'

Thats my Uncle David

Problems with the trim / tilt motor. I ran out of time, so I have given it to a man to fix it. The motor casing has corroded through. There is a thread on the electrics section, and I had a lot of good advice, but I have been away, and so not time to fix it myself. I'm gonna have to take a mortgage out to pay for it, but hey - if I can make it on Sunday, it'll all be worth it :-)
