I am pleased to report that the most recent edition of CBL generated a total of £350 for charity.
My original intention was to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War by donating to the Jimmy Mizen Foundation and the Albert Schweitzer children’s home in Germany. This didn’t prove so easy as I hoped, the German online donation page not allowing for card transfers.
So instead, I took the executive decision to instead donate to an excellent services charity in Combat Stress instead. I hope everyone approves of that choice in the circumstances.
The split of donations this time around then is:
£100 – Combat Stress
£100 – The Jimmy Mizen Foundation
£75 – Breakaway Visits via Bongo’s ‘Millwalk’ page
£75 – Rifle’s sky dive appeal for melanoma research made via the House of Fun website’s donate button
All great causes and ones that I am proud to be able to support on behalf of the fanzine. Next edition will be out in October versus Wolves.
All the best
