I DON’T know whether I should be regarded as uncharitable about this.
I subscribe by direct debit to one or two charities who provide help to the homeless and destitute, and have, in the past, contributed to Cancer Research.
Recently, I had from them – as I have done in the past – a neat little package which included a fair number of sticky labels bearing my name and address. I am elderly – what would I do with them?
I have returned them and said they would be better advised in using that money on cancer research, instead of pestering me with it.
I expect quite a lot of people have had the same experience.
