A thank you to the Yorkshire Post…

Got to give credit where its due and in this instance it goes to the Yorkshire post and its readers.

From their article…

The nation’s most trusted newspaper set up the Just Giving Page on Tuesday to initially raise £4,000 to give back to the 100-year-old, but in just 48 hours, more than £22,000 has been raised with more than 1140 people donating to the appeal from all over the world, including America.

And the response from Mr Parry himself…

Mr Parry, who fled Japanese soldiers after being taken prisoner in Singapore during the Second World War, said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed and thank you to everybody for donating. Much obliged. I’d like to thank The Yorkshire Post for the lovely attention that they’ve given to me and obviously all these donations coming in. It’s very good of them and I appreciate it very much so.”

Sir, we salute you.
