Charity skydiving Shirley

I AM most grateful for the front page coverage you gave me last week (Hailsham edition, July 27) about my plans to celebrate my forthcoming 80th birthday in September by doing a sponsored sky dive to raise funds for the East Sussex Association of Blind and Partially Sighted people.

I wonder if I can prevail upon you again to let anyone who might like to support me and ESAB with a donation know that they can do so online at or by cheque, made payable to FESAB, and sent to me at Garth Cottage, Bodle Street Green, Hailsham BN27 4UA.

Shirley Price, chairman, Friends of ESAB, Hailsham
