Now the Furor about the misdemeanours of some charity workers has died down, have you continued to make charitable donations or have you been put of ever donating again ?

I still continue with the 3 charities we support - only one is an international charity (Action Aid) and so far I have not heard bad things about it.

The good they do far, far outweighs these few bad apples.

But there are some huge, money wasting, bad apples.

I generally don't donate to any of the multi national charities, preferring local hospices, Macmillan and animal shelters to donate to. I have a monthly direct debit to them and I haven't changed that.

I regularly donate to MSF and occasionally to ShelterBox, both of which do essential service in both natural and man-made disasters.

I volunteer for local Colcbester charities .... including raising money for them .... because I can see how and where the money is spent.
