This letter was sent to the Kirkcaldy High School Principal's office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for pensioners. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door raffle prize and was writing to say thank you.
Dear Kirkcaldy High School,
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Old Age Pensions luncheon. I am 87 years old and live at the Raith Home for Elderly Ladies. All of my family has passed away so I am all alone. I want to thank you for your kindness to a forgotten old lady.
My room-mate is 95 and has always had her own radio but she would never let me listen to it. She said it belonged to her long dead husband and, understandably, wanted to keep it safe.
The other day her radio fell off the night-stand and broke into a dozen pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine and I was overjoyed to have the chance to tell her to fuck off.
Thank you for that wonderful opportunity.
God bless you all.
