Folks. Please forgive me if I speak out. First and foremost. I am all for projects that help our kids etc. There are many fine charities an projects going. I fear something along these lines. To be honest. As much as I like to get out, even to the supermarket, simply to meet people and have a chat. However, come Saturday. Mike does his best to stay at home. One, because it seems. Most come out and leave their brains on the kitchen table. As far as most are concerned. They are the only ones on the High St. Secondly. In my local High Street, it is like running an obstacle race. Talk about the charge of the light brigade. Cannons to the left, cannons to the right. Here it is. Collecting boxes, buckets being shaken in your face, clip boards, to sign up to. OK. Not all requests are for cash. Many are simply asking for help!. Looking at the immigration problems etc. We Brits really do lean over backwards to help. However. Each and everyone of us are feeling the pinch. So a collecting box or whatever put before us. Most times, we fail to listen, read the small print etc. I think that we are all becoming so tired of day to day life. So much so, that we tend perhaps to overlook some of these beneficial projects.
