Thanks Cathy

You are correct, this ailing forum sparks into action and consistently delivers when someone calls for help - I'm proud of CBF and CBF members for that.

I'm proud also to have played a small part in this particular fund raising event although much of my input seemed to be reading fleetingly displayed messages from George (Rimms) and John (Highlander) appearing on my phone as I drove up and down Scotland. Rimms and Highlander did great jobs, both different and both largely unsung. Also Ron (Legless) who represented CBF at the event at Lee's.

I want to share with you all how the thought of this wonderful, giving man (who, incidentally, I have never met, nor has his appearances ever coincided with my visits) being left with no gravestone to commemorate his great contribution and stature, was simply too much to accept. I'm so glad Calis collectively came together to honour Stuart and give something back.

But more than that - in some strange way - with all that has happened, and all so quickly, I am most proud that we, CBF, also recognised and honoured Stuart MacDonald while he was with us, how lucky was that.

No, we're not Facebook, and thank f*ck for that.




Thanks to Stuart, and to all of you guys who made all this happen.

People continue to kindly send in donations even after the tribute night.

Just in case people have missed this and/or been away I will leave this open until Sunday evening and then transfer the money.
