My promise to give to charity is finally met.


Some months ago, I promised I would start regular contributions to charity. It’s later than I promised, but today, my daughter ‘adopted’ an Orangutan through the WWF. I prepared a shortlist of charities and predictably, she went for animals.

The original plan was for us to decide as a family, but I knew my family would agree on one charity. Have you any idea how hard it is to get a 9 year old, a 7 year old and a 4 year old just to be quiet for 15 seconds, let alone consider options and reach an informed decision. So I decided to let my eldest daughter choose for the other two.

D and I will argue at a later time to decide where we should pledge some more money. I will, of course, let you know whether we opt to help sick people, hard-pressed animals, the poisoned environment or under-pampered cats in the South-East of England!
