From: Michael Ross, Dunkeswick, North Yorkshire.

WHAT a lovely picture of boxer Nicola Adams looking splendid in her robes during her well-deserved Doctorate ceremony from the University of Leeds.. I congratulate her. Dr Adams and her achievements are a fine example to all those who believe the world owes them a living.

I was mortified to be told that sometimes over a full day session there can be as many as 30 per cent of donors who have made an appointment but don’t bother to turn up. If people can’t keep their appointment, they should phone to say so.
