Re-LoaD Advertising naught but nicely done ;)
Dave and Re-LoaD are both correct.

The issue here is when we needed to move it off the server it was on and
update it and have it maintained etc etc etc Ron was the only person
interested.  Ron has hosted this free of charge to us on one of
Re-LoaD's servers (there plugged you again) for a number of years.

Ron charges the other organisations a nominal fee of £35 to do this.  We
as a group probably have put more demands on his time with the server
that the others combined.

To that end I think it only fair that we 1: chip in for the cost of the
server package it sits on and 2: Cover the cost of the time that Ron has
put in (which I doubt we'll cover).  But I would at least like to match
the £35 that others are paying for Rons time and service.
