DiS Community Hardship Fund


I guess if people are happy for me to be involved in this capacity I will try, I should be able to do that much and certainly would never compromise any confidentiality.


you also shouldn’t feel pressured. it’s been made explicit that people might have to wait a day or two for a decision and transfer so please dont feel you need to be on here any more as a result. there is a committee partly so it’s not any one persons responsibility to read their messages all the time.

if you find it’s not convenient for you then obviously you’re welcome to step back too and be involved in whatever way works best for you.


as this is the first statement it’s covering a little over a month. will be monthly from now on.

the fund has received 24 donations, made 5 grants, none of which were to committee members. it is neither running low, nor in surplus.

thanks very much to you all for your generosity.

a couple notes on anonymity to anyone wishing to use the fund -

if you wish to be known to as few people as possible it would be best to approach a member of the committee other than myself. as we are having a 3rd party confirm when the transfer has gone through, contacting me necessitates two members of the committee knowing your username. (please feel free to contact me if that’s what you’d prefer though).

also - as I found out when I accidentally misspelt someone’s name on a payment last week (sorry about that), I do not need your full name to transfer money, just the sort code & account no.



This is great thank you

(I think the full name thing is just useful if for some reason the details are incorrect and you need to get it back from the bank - it’s easier if you can show you wanted it to go to a certain person I think. don’t know of this ever happening to anyone though)


ahhh, makes sense. could do initials or first initial and surname maybe if anyone’s worried about it.


Well done, mates.

will leave this open a while & once we’ve got some volunteers i presumed we’d do an anon poll for voting, if anyone has any better suggestions of how to do this please say.

cheers babes.


@bugduv you’d be good



as @unlucky was planning on stepping down shortly anyway, and with us having two volunteers, he’s decided to jump a bit early.

means we don’t need to bother with another divisive election campaign, i guess.

are you all happy with @deadonthestairs & @stupidsexyflanders taking over from @Unlucky & @ynot
