Recession has driven a wedge between big and small charities, the Charities Aid Foundation said. Total income for the top 200 charities grew by 4 per cent in real terms between 1991 and 1992, but the next 200 suffered a fall of 9 per cent.

Three people were remanded for sentencing after being convicted of a pounds 300,000 charity deception. Liverpool Crown Court was told that only 3p in every pound collected for the Leukaemia and Cancer Society Fund went to the cause.
