Letter: A desperate plea

Sir: Five years ago my wife gave birth to our second child. Unfortunately, we now find the cost of having two children quite high, particularly as my nine-year-old son has taken a keen interest in golf.

I understand that there are plenty of caring people about who are willing to donate money to alleviate the plight of people in a similar situation to myself. Could I ask them, therefore, to donate generously to my family? I think pounds 30,000 would be enough to ensure that my son and I could afford to play golf at a reasonable club until he is no longer a financial burden on his poor old parents.

Without this money my wife may have to undergo unnecessary fertility treatment with a view to becoming pregnant with a ridiculously large number of children/foetuses. Thanks in advance.
