So everyone is aware of the outcome here:
All of the money in the PayPal account has been transferred out to our normal bank account. We will need to remember to put money in when the next website hosting bill comes through, but that should not be until the second half of next year. We will continue to work to validate the account with PayPal, but this could take a while to achieve based on how things have been going so far.
