Thank you to everyone who has donated items over the years. It is very much appreciated and makes running the RPG and D&D groups so much easier as we are not needing to share resources between up to 5 or 6 groups at a time.

Special thanks have to go to Michael Mordor who set up the request for donations in 2018 as well as supporting us by donating miniatures for the pupils to paint. The generosity and support of the D&D / RPG community on Twitter knows no bounds.
