Keep fat cats away from the charity cream


There have been numerous reports recently about the obscene salaries paid to the directors of charities. This leaves the public worried that their donations are going to the fat cats and not those most in need. Too often there is a layer of ‘executives’ creaming off donations, many from people who can afford only a modest gift.

I suggest that all advertising asking for money for charities, whether in the press or on billboards, and the ‘chuggers’ on the streets should be legally bound to declare and display the salary of the chief executive and top officials. The public can then decide which charity deserves support.
