Char­ity waste

YOURS (UK) - - Your Letters -

I re­cently re­ceived a pack­age in the post from the Red Cross which in­cluded six notelets and en­velopes, two book­marks, a sheet of name and ad­dress la­bels, and a pen and lapel pin, along with a let­ter ask­ing for a do­na­tion.

I didn’t or­der any of these items and, on dis­cussing it with my neigh­bours, found they’d also re­ceived a sim­i­lar pack­age. Just how much char­ity money was spent on not only pro­duc­ing these items in their thou­sands, but also the postage cost? The ma­jor char­i­ties are al­ways ap­peal­ing for more funds, but if this is the way they waste their do­nated money then it’s not sur­pris­ing a lot of peo­ple will think twice be­fore hand­ing over their hard-earned cash.
