Sir: Chris Blackhurst expressed concern at the ways in which some of the money given to charities is spent. His data relating to charitable incomes were all obtained from the Charities Aid Foundation, itself a registered charity. I wonder how many people realise that if they undertake payroll-giving via the Give As You Earn scheme, the Charities Aid Foundation automatically deducts 5 per cent of the sum donated to pay itself for distributing the donation to the chosen charity.
