No doubt on occasions it may have been a tiny bit of a nuisance but your generous donations and willingness to help others have kept me going and once again I am asking for your help in my effort to raise money for two worthwhile causes this year. “You helped me raise £6438 last year for the Charity for disabled children for which I am most grateful”.
