Fear, stress and anx­i­ety have all in­ten­si­fied for peo­ple with cancer dur­ing the cur­rent health cri­sis, which means peo­ple need Mag­gie’s now more than ever.

Mag­gie’s re­lies al­most en­tirely on vol­un­tary do­na­tions, so the gen­eros­ity of all our sup­port­ers, in­clud­ing play­ers of Peo­ple’s Post­code Lottery, is vi­tal in al­low­ing us to keep sup­port­ing those liv­ing with cancer, and deal­ing with the sig­nif­i­cant im­pact of the coro­n­avirus on their phys­i­cal and men­tal health, on their fi­nances and on the lives of their loved ones.

The sup­port of play­ers over the last 12 years has helped us to reach thou­sands of peo­ple across Great Bri­tain liv­ing with cancer and I would like to send a huge heart­ful thank you to ev­ery­one who plays.

How much I re­gret not writ­ing sooner to de­fend the Ed­i­tor, who made some very per­ti­nent com­ments in the May is­sue, re­gard­ing the sham­bles in which the UK finds it­self in the coro­n­avirus cri­sis. I had thought, and hoped, that there would be many howls of an­guish at the crit­i­cisms levied at him, but maybe oth­ers felt like my­self, and feared be­ing tram­pled in the rush to de­fend him!

The down-to-earth at­ti­tude of Mike Lowe to many lo­cal is­sues is to be ap­plauded, and his com­ments in the way the gov­ern­ment has dealt with the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion will strike chords with many peo­ple. We are all en­ti­tled to dif­fer­ent views, and we should re­spect dif­fer­ent opin­ions, but an ed­i­to­rial such as Mike wrote in the May is­sue will have pro­voked com­ment and dis­cus­sion, which, af­ter all, a mag­a­zine such as Cotswold Life has ev­ery right to do.

Keep up the good work, Mike, keep­ing our won­der­ful mag­a­zine grounded and bal­anced, keep­ing free speech alive and well!

I was dis­mayed to read two re­ally un­pleas­ant com­ments about cy­clists in

Ed­i­tor’s Com­ment and Cotswold Boy’s col­umn. As a keen ly­cra-clad 73-year-old fe­male cy­clist ‘ly­cra louts, sweat­ing and pant­ing... an ego­tis­ti­cal bunch at best of times’ are quotes which I find highly ob­jec­tion­able. I think th­ese views re­flect the very big­oted, right wing agenda that I de­tect in your mag­a­zine. Would th­ese jour­nal­ists pre­fer peo­ple stay at home get­ting more obese while they can en­joy the peace of their priv­i­leged lives?

I re­ceived my copy of Cotswold Life mag­a­zine to­day and couldn’t wait to en­joy its contents.

Mike Lowe’s open­ing Ed­i­to­rial was, as al­ways, clever, witty, amus­ing and to­tally to the point !

Adam Ed­wards is an­other of my favourites. At a time when there is much to worry about and lit­tle laugh­ter, I ac­tu­ally cried with laugh­ter when read­ing his ar­ti­cle in the June is­sue about his ‘makeshift’ wash­ing line.

Cotswold Life is an amaz­ing mag­a­zine which I will be sub­scrib­ing to for a long time to come.

Please keep up the good work.
