Christmas, a time to care?

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 4 December, 2010

Twitter has been full today of talk about a Daily Fail article (I’m not a fan….) and I have just had a chance to read it. It’s from a well off woman who wants to cancel Christmas because she has fallen on hard times (only bringing home £2000pcm & her husband’s salary) and can no […]
