From Mr Hilary Kilborn

Sir: Maybe I am in a minority, but I am disgusted by the news that the pounds 9,000 donated to St George's church in Gravesend by Disney ("Disney fans follow the trail of Pocahontas legend to Kent", 11 October) is to be used to floodlight the church and Pocahontas's statue.

Why should any church be floodlit? Why spend this money on something that will be an ongoing maintenance burden on church funds as well as a continuous drain on precious energy resources?

Why not spend the money to forward the cause of racial equality and harmony or in some similarly useful area?

Yours sincerely,

Hilary Kilborn
