Not good news for our community.

No nothing about this is good.
This isn’t good news. They provided brilliant End of life care ( along with Macmillan nurses) for my brother in law recently. It should be compulsory to donate to these type of charities.
When we passed the KH shop in the precinct earlier today Mrs EM pointed out how bare it seemed.
There's so much about this which is incredibly frustratingly.
Why have they decided now is the time to have an emergency appeal? They will have known about the lack of cashflow for months and seemingly have done nothing.
I know they have blamed the lack of fundraising events as a contributory factor, yet there has been countless "virtual" events for running/cycling etc over the last 4 months yet they've not tapped into that opportunity.
And don't get me started about the farce that is trying to donate items to them for them to sell !!!
Got to agree with just about everything you’ve said @c0tt0nt0p Just after lockdown ended I’d seen people queuing at Norton Bridge so went with a car load of decent stuff to donate (a special journey of about 20 miles return). When I got there there was notices saying they weren’t accepting donated goods. I ended up taking it to Gnosall (even further away) & putting it all in the fire station collection bin
Like many of these type of organisations they need a proven business person running it. It seems to me that most of these places are run more like a public service department rather than a “profit making business”
It’s disgusting that hospices have to run as charities anyway. A dignified death should be a right for all and should be publicly funded.
Raise income tax for the rich from 40p to 50p in the pound and that should pay for all the hospices and air ambulances.
We are awash with military helicopters that we are already paying for and seem to have stopped invading people for a while. It seems a fairly straightforward thing to do. Others can manage it.
Removing the 'avoidance' scams might be a better bet?
Easiest way to raise money in the UK is to make people pay the tax they owe, but they're the same people that donate to our government.
By "donate to our government" you mean "donate to the Tory party"?
No. Donate to the Labour Party.
That's not two-thirds of what the Conservative and Brexit parties get.
On the news today...
We can bail out other "essential services", we should be able to slip a few bob in the right direction, surely?
Funding self indulgence is always more important than actually benefiting society. Just ask Harry and Meghan.
