Your readers have been so generous

Have your say

THANKS to the readers of the Lincolnshire Free Press, following your recent article about my trip to Kenya representing the South Lincolnshire Batallion of the Boy’s Brigade.

I was humbled to receive some substantial donations from your article, several were from “anonymous”, and this really is my only way of expressing my thanks.

I collected far more than my target of £1,000 – the excess has been placed in envelopes and will be passed on to the leaders of the companies we visit in Kenya.

To give you some idea, £25 will provide uniforms for a company often of nearly 100 children.

Thank you again readers of the Free Press – for those who kindly supplied me with email or snail mail addresses, I will try to send you a report on my return.
