But I draw the line at the latest ‘gimmick’ designed to help us part with our hard-earned cash.

I refer to the ‘charity singers’ who pop up from time to time in the town centre complete with a bank of amplifiers designed to keep the local shopworkers royally entertained (I use the word loosely) throughout their working day.

From what I have seen the noise drives more people awy from the collecting buckets than to them.
