Letter to The Times (not published) about Arpad Busson and chums and their charity ball

Sir,

Although I'm not a believer, when reading of Arpad Busson's latest charity ball ('Richest and most glamorous bid for glittering prizes at Ark fundraiser') I was reminded of Jesus' parable that the poor man who gives his last penny is more valued by God than the rich man who makes a great fuss of giving a financially more 'valuable' gift.

It'll no doubt be viewed by many as churlish to say this but I wish newspapers would give equal coverage to the thousands of acts of real charity enacted each day by ordinary people who are not rich and who do not receive the benefit of a grotesquely luxurious night out for their efforts.
Yours faithfully,

John Slinger
