Reader letter: Generous donation

Share this article

On perhaps the hottest day this year, the monthly newspaper collection took place in City Road Car Park, March, by the local Rotary Club.

What made this memorable was that a March Citizen decided to start donating her newspapers as a result of reading that the monies raised supported the Annual Kids Out Project, where some two dozen youngsters were given a day’s visit to Pigeons Farm at Thorney. That included entry, lunch, transport and pocket money. Such was the generosity of this lady, she donated there and then a large bank note towards next year’s outing, which was gratefully received by president Peter Bennett.

An unexpected and very generous act, for which we express public thanks.
