Sadly I assume we will not have the lovely daughter of Yabb encouraging us to part with dosh  so its important that you remember her sweet enforcing tactics and take that into account take your original donation,,, double it;;; have another drink double it again
The charity has lost a lot of donations this year and need our help DIG DEEP

Thanks to all involved that made that happen.

As has been said, if you have the spare beer money with nothing to spend it on, please donate. Other things apart from COVID don't stop:

What a fabulous introduction to the evening . Well done. Is it a precedent?? Do you think we can get a similar exhalation from the stage next year ??  Just imagine the spectacle. The whole festival toasting absent friends and making a donation to ttcf. That would make a sizable contribution for the price of a round of drinks  (Or am I in Cropredy lala land )

As has has been said that was a fine way to get things underway. Despite being well acquainted with the toast we have never participated and our non-Talkawhile friends hadn’t heard of it. By the end there was talk of preparing concoctions so there may be new recruits next year. A donation has been made and the link passed on.

Just want to add my thanks to the people made this happen.

My first 'attendance' at the Toast, although it was a close run thing, made it home from playing cricket with 5 minutes to spare!

Next year I shall make sure to appear in person for the first time.
