AO community donation in memory of GJ

As a way of remembering and showing Alfaowner's appreciation for our sadly departed friend GJ - Geoff, I have this evening made a payment of 155 to the RNLI, a charity which Geoff and his family supported.

I would like to thank all Alfaowner members who made a donation and those who made a direct donation of their own in response the the requests.

More information can be found here;

First thought on watching this was a hand trapped by a hatch sounds horribly painful. Then I thought of GJ, and then how much of the stuff in that tanker will be consumed by us, though it's looking high in the water to me:

I made Geoff's wife Jenny aware of this donation and this
was her response:

Thank you for letting me know about the AO collection in Geoff's name. I am still amazed at how many friends he made on the forum. If there is any easy way to thank them all, please could you do it on my behalf. The funeral directors also received donations for the RNLI - these amounted to 250 and have been forwarded to the charity via the Worcester branch, of which I am a commitee member (as was Geoff until his illness prevented him from continuing his support).
