Lucky you. Feel like donating to a better cause? I can't afford to throw 60 quid lenses away.

True - but can anybody seriously afford 20 (a top quality clear or "steam age" UV" costs more) to "protect" against something that rarely happens to a lens.
This lens is likely to cost more to repair than replace but many lens costs less than 20% of the lens price to have a new front element fitted.

As I said Len, about 1.50 gets you the same level of protection.
