There are a staggering 1,519 military charities in the UK, with a combined value of £3.1billion. And a question has been asked about our awareness of these charities. “It’s time we were made aware of what all the CEO’s take out of these charities. Then & only then could this issue be addressed. #LestWeForget”.
Shouldn’t it be obvious that these charities are competing for donations to help our veterans? Wouldn’t it be simpler to prune and combine some of them, creating small but more efficient groups? Or is it a once a year main event and thereafter out of sight, out of mind?
