Charity Bailout

Recommended Posts

This one sticks in my throat

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/uk-coronavirus-pandemic-live-advice-21805328

"Charities to get £750m bailout package to help vital work continue"

Charities where "talented execs" get paid 6 figure salaries + pensions to "help" people get a bail out.

Donating to charity is discretionary, end of.

I said when Sajid David walks and this ex GD rich banker **** of a man was put in place it was going to be a disaster.

It'll get worse.

I disagree. I think it was a pathetic offering.

I work with a lot of very small charities who do great things, and they are really suffering.

Ignore British Heart Foundation and the like, charities like the Samaritans and the CAB have a massive roll to play and need supporting. As do local hospices and many others.

I doubt it will go to the small, local charities though. It will go to shave the children and suchlike.

CAB are completely useless in the age of Google, I rang them once and all I got was "err, umm, not sure, can't say".

Samaritans on the other hand, now there's a charity that should be given more funding. I offered to volunteer for them once but pulled out after the interview/training day, I just wasn't made of tough enough stuff to deal with that then (and probably aren't now either).
