Letter: Charity names prostituted

Sir: I was saddened to read the letter of David Robinson about charitable organisations acting like "hunting dogs". Having recently attempted to appeal to many industries and shopping outlets for help to build a much-needed nursery, I know that it is hard to get scraps from the rich man's table.

I thought that at least good manners would warrant a reply - even a polite refusal and wishes of good luck, but, alas, it seems that has gone by the wayside.

Perhaps David Robinson should try fund-raising for a charity and see how disheartening and humiliating it can be.
