Lost money for Christmas gifts

MAY I appeal to the person who found a white envelope addressed to me at the Beer Festival on the evening of Friday, October 28?

Unfortunately, this envelope contained money from my 88-year-old housebound mother in Croydon who had sent it with my brother to enable me to get her some Christmas shopping.

I didn’t lose it through inebriation but as I pulled a shopping bag, in which to place beer glasses, from my handbag.

I understand that you probably felt justified in claiming this as yours through someone else’s inattention, but ask that you kindly contact me to return the money.

Thank you for your anticipated kindness.
