Questioning charity spend

I have read, with interest, the letter from the chairman of Age Concern and agree with his comments.

Each day this week an 8” x 2” column-wide advertisement has appeared in the Daily Telegraph.

Now, I do not wish my donation to Help the Aged to be spent on media advertising, but on the needy.

I find the use of charity donations to merchandise items, to say the least, odious!

My future donations will, I am sorry to say, find alternatives to support.

Eddie Bell,

87 Fore Street, Exmouth.
