Give fundrais­ing credit where it’s due

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I WAS dis­ap­pointed that the ar­ti­cle in last week’s Gazette did not credit the ‘real’ or­gan­is­ers of this mar­vel­lous lunch but in­stead men­tioned var­i­ous lo­cal politi­cians who seem to ap­pear as if by magic when events like this take place (‘ Se­nior cit­i­zens meal fundraiser’, Gazette, Novem­ber 19).

It is good that the politi­cians at­tend th­ese events, but if it wasn’t for Jackie West­brook from West Dray­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Jean Ball, the fan­tas­tic chef who pro­duced some out­stand­ing fare, plus Carl Neilsen and John Davies, from Yiewsley and West Dray­ton Town Ac­tion Group (Y&WDTAG), events like th­ese would never take place.

On the day there was also val­ued help from the Brunel stu­dents, mem­bers of Y&WDTAG plus other lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Our com­mu­nity is proud to put on th­ese events, so in fu­ture it would be nice if the Gazette could recog­nise the peo­ple who give their time to or­gan­ise th­ese events.

Credit where credit’s due please – th­ese peo­ple de­serve it! JOHN COLE­MAN Chantry Close
