I have to take issue with Sandra Chapman last Saturday on not getting the £100 high street voucher (‘I’m cancelling Christmas, like the Queen, I need a rest,’ Oct 23) as she couldn’t be bothered.
Obviously she does not need it.
I think that she should have applied and passed it on to a worthy charity, eg ‘Guide dogs for the Blind’.
I simply don’t agree with such handouts. Better to help the shops by giving them a rate-free year, job done.
