nPower could raise valuable charity cash

Oxford Mail: . .

I am writing concerning the publicity over RWE nPower’s decision to blow up the Didcot Power Station cooling towers in the dark, thus depriving the community at large an opportunity to view this long-awaited spectacle.

I have a suggestion which I hope RWE nPower gives serious consideration to before they blow up the main chimney.

That a draw/raffle is held, say £1 a ticket. The winning ticket holders push the detonator button and all proceeds go to local charities.

This practice was widely used in the days of the old central electricity generating board, at the end of a power station’s life and not only created valuable community involvement but also raised valued donations for local charities.

How about it RWE nPower?

Now that the world has witnessed the horror and slaughter of Christians, Yazidis and Shia at the hand of the IS militants, I do hope that people, no matter where they stand politically, will realise that terrorist organisations like IS and all the others that infest the Middle East and Africa need to be confronted and defeated.

I have a way out to fix the problem of lack of money in the NHS that we have got. I think if we were to register the NHS under a foreign country we could then get some of the billions of pounds that they give away in foreign aid. What do you think?
