Lightning Association News 

As members will know, formal annual membership fees have been abandoned and we now rely on voluntary donations from Lightning enthusiasts following what we are doing on the site and wanting to support those activities. Follow this link and at the foot of the page, you will  see details of how you can contribute to the Association maintaining XR724 and keeping you informed of news and new Lightning stories as they appear. 

The Lightning Association would like to thank all our supporters who have sent us donations for their very generous contribution to our running costs.  We are always in need of more funds, however, and would be extremely grateful for further help if you feel you can afford to do so.
