    Many of you will know from the thread in GOT (RIP my love) that our friend Hazza recently lost his partner of 9 years very suddenly and unexpectedly.

    We have been in touch with Hazza over the past few days to see if there is anything we can do to help. He is currently trying to arrange a memorial headstone so he has somewhere he can visit, sit and be with Sofia, and we'd like to help with the costs as, after all, they don't come cheap.

    I hope we can all show Hazza how we can come together as a community, and help him out at what must be a particularly difficult time.

    Update

    I want to personally thank everyone who has been able to contribute so far. Despite being at a rather tough time of the month for many people given payday schedules etc, we have already reach 25% of our stated goal. I know that others have spoken to me and let me know they will be donating when paid (for some that's tomorrow, for others it's later this month, for others yet the beginning of July) which is very encouraging, and I hope to see a bit of a bump over the next week or so, and am confident we can make a significant different to @Hazza who I know has been overwhelmed by the response and support from our community.

    For those who haven't already, I would ask that those of you with social media accounts share the campaign if possible tomorrow, and again on Friday - these will be key dates for attracting attention just as people have been paid, with the best possible chance of additional donations.

    Once again, thanks all!

    I have to say I'm very impressed so far at the good that has been done, especially when you consider forums are a declining medium. Great to see everyone banding together for what is a brilliant cause.
