I am sure the charity does good work, but I'm voting cold for the following reasons--
Our high streets are being killed off by multiple retailers,and smaller towns in many cases are full of charity shops,pound shops, and financial institutuions.
Take a walk down your local high street and ask any of the smaller family run businesses how often somebody comes into their shop and gives them stock to sell,at no charge. Ask them how often someone walks into their shop and volunteers to work as many hours as possible each week for no salary.Add to that the window display material and other advertising produced on a national scale, which a single shop cannot afford to use/produce,and you can see it is actually unfair competition !
If you think that someone buying a second hand item of clothing is not taking money away from a shop selling new items then think again. Few people have unlimited spare cash each week,so every pound spent in a charity shop is a pound which is not available to spend elsewhere.
At one time we had jumble sales at the weekend,and the rest of the time retail shops were about the only way to buy something. Now it is an all week long 'jumble sale' in charity shops, and our local shops/high streets/families are suffering.
My local cancer research shop is earning so much money they can afford to leave the door open in the middle of winter,with staff working in summer clothing in a heated shop !! Surely that is a waste of money,which could help the charity---hypocrites the lot of them !

CAREFREEBLUE: Lets hope you never have to be in a position where you have to rely on something or some service supported by a charity?

I can see your problem but my biggest gripe would be the percentage most charities actually receive after all the top people take their "DESERVING" wages.
