Whups it is a MUGS GAME giving to these so called Charities. They are businesses not charities I gave money to Christies 10 years ago when I was in there for cancer treatment, Later found out they had £6million stashed in an Icelandic bank At this moment in time I am giving a donation and support to ATAXIA uk which is a neurological condition which effects balance coordination and speech and effects about 10000 people and there is no know cure

Could not agree more. Every year at at Christmas when we are in the centre of Sydney CBD I look for people who are selling the Big Issue. Down on their lick ,but having a go . I make my charitable donations directly to them. No fat cats skimming of 80% of what is donated

For me it's The Air Ambulance and The Salvation Army. My son works with both of them. When they are on a big job The Sally Army rolls up with their butty van and feeds the exhausted firefighters.
