Great to see the appeal off to a good start but please, everyone, keep the monentum going. If you can afford something towards helping Hector it really will make a difference.  I can't imagine how hard it is gor everyone in Hector's loving family.

A little extra added.    Pippin gives this his official paw of approval

Thanks guys, @paulbeckwith it's okay, my daughter and son in law keep messaging me asking who people are so I keep them right. My daughter messaged me saying 'those railway guys on the forum are amazing' and I fully concur  :D

I am aware of donations made where folks have remained anonymous in this thread, we are all very grateful for your contributions and your humility.
Things are ticking over and the fund is at just over £1400 now, if I could sell my soul for the other £3600 I would, unfortunately I think that ship has sailed  :(  :D

I don’t think you would get that much, Lawrence.😁. Donated to a good cause. Hope you reach the total.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

@Malc  just had a message from daughter saying 'I think another one of the railway guys just donated, they are amazing' and I would agree  :D we are just over £1500 now so hopefully things will keep going.

Not on here but, we have had a few messages asking if this is a scam. Those of you that know me from the very inception of this forum will know that behaviour of that nature is just not me. However, if you do have any concerns please pm me, I am happy to answer any further questions.
Thanks again folks, and if you can rally any more troops to the cause please share this link https://gofund.me/87f925a3

I know what you mean about scams, but as you say, you have been a stalwart of the forum, so I had no worries. I’ll share on my FB page.

Hi Lawrence,

We've got four dogs and I had a heart flutter procedure in January so thought I cannot not contribute a little bit. Told the misses and she said I was an idiot giving that much and so she upped it!  :)

Good luck to the little fella  :thumbsup:

Cheers, weave  :beers:

Probably get flamed for asking but what happens if you don’t succeed…? You need to get to £5k in 2 days, and you’ve raised £1500 in the preceding 4? I’m sure it’s not a scam, but will everyone get a refund if the total isn’t reached?

And of course I have, but platitudes of “we’ll get the money somehow” aside it doesn’t seem clear, and therefore not an unreasonable question to me. They’ve said the vet needs the money by Wednesday. One presumes they don’t have access to that sort of credit. Just a question.
