Heroes’ cash rake-off blast
ARMED forces veterans’ charities have been blasted for how they raise cash.
The Charity Commission had fierce criticism over fundraising firms taking a cut of donations.
Most charities started in the past 10 years had oversight “weaknesses”, it said.
Boss Michelle Russell urged donors to consider: “Are you giving direct or is a company taking a cut?”
The Mirror revealed last year how Afghan Heroes, now closed, spent just 3% of donations on veterans.
