Charity starts at home

EDITOR – I refer to the letter “Support school project” and wish to respond.

Firstly the statement that Kenneth Gardens has been set aside for “lower income bracket” families is totally incorrect. This was the rule of pre-1994 but since then that no longer applies.

Secondly, judging from the vehicles (ranging from luxury to twin cab LDVs and family cars) parked in the grounds and roads, as well as numerous satellite dishes, the majority of these flats are no longer occupied by lower income groups. No doubt there are families who fall into the “lower income bracket” category who need assistance, so I suggest you approach the residents of Kenneth Gardens for donations.

If you doubt my statement feel free to take a drive past Kenneth Gardens any day of the week and especially during the weekends to prove my point. Charity starts at home so I strongly suggest that you approach these residents who can well afford to help.
