There’s a particular charity which is very popular amongst the Islamic community. On the face of it it does great work with refugees and the poverty-stricken in South Asia. But whilst sat at one of their events where they asked people in a packed hall to contribute donations via an MC asking and then falling silent for minutes at a time (starting at £10k, working its way down) I decided to check their accounts. More than 50% of its income was spent on fundraising activities and admin. It really is appalling, and the man in the street generally has no idea.
