I am acutely aware that everybody who has participated in the birthday auctions, is awaiting news of the final donations. I owe you an update, especially as I have been away travelling the last four days.
First of all: All monies have now been received and the final donation
is would be ready to transfer. Upon returning from my trip early this evening, I did the final balancing of all the incoming monies – auction proceeds and donations – and have found everything matches up. However, when I tried to transfer the sum just a few moments ago, I realised that the Margaret Armitage tribute page for LOROS on much-loved only accepts the payment through a credit card. I had hoped to pay via Paypal (where the donations and proceeds came in). So unfortunately there is a little further delay while I transfer the funds from Paypal to my bank, in order to then make the transfer via my personal credit card. Paypal informs me that it will take between 1 and 2 business days for the funds to appear in my bank account. So the upshot is that I will only be able to transfer on Wednesday or Thursday.
Linda60 has been present while I have organised all the financial transactions and has seen my book-keeping. She’s acting as the eye of the fandom and auditor.
I will transfer the donation as soon as the money comes available in my credit card. I am really sorry for the delay – I was unaware that donating was only possible via credit card otherwise I would’ve made alternative arrangements earlier. I will inform you of the final transfer of the donation as soon as it happens. Apologies for the delay!
