The following is a letter to insidetime, from issue September 2011
In reply to Darel Black-Rose (Star Letter – August issue), I am all for doing my bit to help others, but it makes me sick to see the amount of money our country sends to other countries. We all know what a mess England is in, financially, at the moment, but still this government send millions of pounds of our money to these countries. Whilst at Full Sutton I have seen 3 charity events – one for Help For Heroes, which I fully support, and the other 2 were for Pakistan and Haiti. The latter 2 were natural tragedies, but at the end of the day shit happens. Why should we foot the bill for it? I don’t hear any of these countries sending money, or anything, to England when we lose homes and possessions due to floods.
As for charity events, yeah, crack on, but look closer to home – we have kids starving in this country, families below the breadline, old people freezing to death in winter because they can’t afford to pay for heat, so if you feel the urge to donate to charity just remember what a great man once said ‘Your Country Needs You’!
