Hi Hayley

As far as I am aware a donation payment goes to Chris the designer and manager of the forum and is put towards server running costs, in the UK we do not run forums for personal profit as they do in the USA

Have referred this to Chris, I'm sure he can sort it out for you.

By the way it doesn't matter what the currency is with Paypal, pounds or Euros. I've just carried out a test donation which defaulted to euros, but otherwise went through fine.

If in doubt, instigate a payment direct through paypal to (chris @ astra-systems.com) without the spaces, then you should be able to choose your currency.
