Scarfolk Council has been an inspiration and a joy for me.

Scarfolk Council has been an inspiration and a joy for me.

Now the septic spleen suckers that were managing their merch (and a whole bunch of other's merch as well) have declared insolvency just before payout day.

Scarfolk Council have never had ads on their site, and have never asked for donations or anything. Until now. Now they are hoping to recoup some of their losses, and possibly cover some of the inevitable (and likely fruitless) legal fees.

If you've enjoyed Scarfolk, and can spare a few pounds, please chip in.
