When I went to make my will which is just one page and easy , I was thinking of taking £50 as my donation and was thinking Red Cross or Friends Of The Animals , but I was told in quite a kind but firm way £90 and here is the list of charities choose one , well it actually put my back up , so I think I shall stick to my 99p one from the Newsagents , and give my £50 to my choice .
