HOW good it was to read about the six young teenagers who raised money and went out to Romania to support children with AIDS and their families (York pupils dive in to help Romanian AIDS children, August 23). All power to their elbow as the saying goes.

I know all volunteering and charities need help and money but give me young people like these rather than so-called celebrities who have more money than they need having iced water poured over them on TV, then donate to the chosen charity. Or maybe I am just a cynic.
