The Nancy Blackett Trust has just received a 150,000 donation, the bequest of member Tony Parslow who died just over a year ago.

An equivalent amount was also left to The Arthur Ransome Trust, which was set up about 10 years ago with the aim of establishing an Arthur Ransome visitor centre in the Lake District.

I imagine the members of both trusts will be scratching their heads wondering how best to use these wonderful windfalls.

So it's really 'Three million cheers for Tony Parslow', bless him.
