Dear Sir David Martin Foundation,
I am writing to thank you for your personal acknowledgement of my support for your Foundation. I was very touched to receive your card. It is rare that I receive such personal recognition from the charities I support. It is almost uniquely characteristic of your Foundation, which is doing such wonderful work for the many troubled young people in our community. I will support you for as long as my health (I'm 78!) allows.
I was a great admirer of Sir David Martin. He was the Patron of a small charity, completely run by volunteers, with which I was involved. I have no illusions about the fierce competition for the charitable dollar that you face but please keep up the good work. It is very valuable. Triple Care Farm is a wonderful project. The occasional personal touch marks you out from the more commercial types of charities and has certainly won my long-term commitment to your cause.
A long-time supporter
