This wiki is really just a love-letter to absurdity. I think it’s useful but then again, I would: I wrote it; to please myself; to help me remember things; with the vague aspiration someone else might find it useful or entertaining.

Who knows? Maybe that someone is you. Hope so. Enjoy yourself!

I don’t advertise and I don’t ask for anything in return, but if you are the type who likes to say thanks, here’s where I’d say it:

Georgia’s Fund

Georgia was a brave, talented, beautiful little girl. She had a lovely smile which she wore through a whole lot of hardship. She was a great little cricketer, and she was mad about animals. Especially wolves. In October 2016 Georgia was taken away from her mum, dad and big brother, and they – and all of us in the family’s wider community – miss her terribly.

Georgia’s mum and dad have set up a fund in Georgia’s memory, which, as of what would have been Georgia’s 15th birthday in May 2019, had raised over £150,000 to support research into better treatments for Neuroblastoma (through Children with Cancer UK and Neuroblastoma UK. A small portion will go to looking after wolves. Cricket can look after itself.

The good news is that the fund is now formally registered as a charitable fund (UK charity no. 1099682), so is eligible for gift aid and all that jazz.

You can now donate easily through BTmydonate by clicking right here. (BT are closing this platform at the end of June and we will be switching to JustGiving, but for now it’s okay at BTmydonate).

No donation is too small that it wouldn't make my day.
