It had been arranged that I would attend a local school this afternoon to present a cheque from Brighton Lions. The school has been raising funds for a project and the Lions agreed to make a donation once the rest of the money had been raised. The last fund-raising event was planned for this afternoon and the organisers were confident that this would bring them to their target, hence my attendance. But the forecast is for heavy rain to sweep across southern England today - it's already started - so the event has been postponed until next Thursday.
The irony is that the funds have been raised to pay for the installation of solar panels!
