Charities Run Out of Money — Just When They Need it Most
"We did some fundraising over Christmas which provided, but it hasn't cured the problem. What we've found is that the number of donations hasn't declined, but the amount of money coming in has. We now need to make about £1.5m in savings, so we're having to let a few people go which is heartbreaking.
"Our main priority is to keep our beds operating for those who need them most. But we make no secret of the fact that the next year is about riding out this recession and coming out the other end intact."
£32m = The amount that British charities have lost through cancelled payments over the past 10 months.
