LETTER: Thanks for generosity

The Samaritans of Eastbourne and District would like to thank the good people of Polegate for so generously supporting our recent street collection. And a special thank you to the kind lady who popped into a nearby charity shop to buy a pair of gloves for one of our chilly collectors! In addition to putting more than £227 in our collecting boxes, shoppers and passers-by stopped to chat, make enquiries about our work and offer personal messages of support. It was a cold and damp morning, but the Polegate spirit was high and our collectors went home with a spring in their step.

We’ll be in the main square of the Arndale Centre on Saturday April 11 to encourage awareness of what we do.

Richard Osborne

Hon. Treasurer, The

Samaritans of Eastbourne

and District
