LETTER: I applaud the efforts of the school buskers

I feel I must applaud the gallant efforts of the young people from our local secondary schools, who braved the elements to busk in the town centre last Saturday to raise badly needed funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

They gave up their time and used their talents to make music for the enjoyment of the local shoppers. What a shame therefore, that as this day coincided with the Eastbourne Bonfire Society, Stix Drummers felt it necessary to position themselves between two groups of buskers to try and drown them out. The hospice serves the whole community so couldn’t some thought have been given to the worthwhile fundraising that was taking place for one day only.
