I WOULD like to publicly thank the anonymous resident who left a letter addressed to me at St Richard's Church and Community Centre.

Inside the letter was £150 of food gift vouchers with the following note:

Dear Dawn

I'm sure that you know of some persons that could use these.

Perhaps get tins for Christmas parcels.

I received them as gifts and do not want to waste them.

There's some peoples' needs that are greater than mine.

God Bless.

I intend to get tins of biscuits and sweets for the elderly as treats for Christmas. We have several different elderly groups in Hangleton and Knoll and it will be distributed between them.

Isn't it wonderful there are such generous people in the community? I wish I could thank you in person for helping the community in this way.

Councillor Dawn Barnett
