As Andrew says, donations basically go to cover hosting and domain fees when the they fall due.

Anything is genuinely appreciated. Most common is probably £10 but we have had some smaller and some bigger.
All we would say is that costs are ongoing whereas most, but not all, donations tend to be one off but thank you for considering contributing.

Isn`t there a way of transferring as a `gift` rather than payment for goods?

Sorry to contradict you Steve, but I checked it out and, apparently, that option only appears if the sender and recipient addresses are based in the same country.
