When i refused his offer to take this item from me for free the response I received was most uncharitable, i complained in the strongest terms to cancer uk, as i considered his request was totally unsolicited and would have placed me in clear breech of ebay rules had i acseeded to his request i regard the response i received from cancer uk was totally dismissive.
