This interview by Ray Hadley with neurosurgeon Charlie Teo highlights the problems associated with the fundraising activities of a range of charities.
The money that is gobbled up extends way beyond the administration costs of the fundraising collection company.
The percentage of funds that reach those in need is dismal.
Possible solutions include:
- Donate directly to your local brigade or charity.
- Associations and charity groups must be more transparent with their running costs.
- The public deserves to know how much of their money reaches the advertised beneficiary.
