the £3.95 postage will put some off

This is a bit of a weird one, personally wouldn't feel right buying sale items from such a worthwhile charity, although I guess if you did you could always donate the rest of the original price back.

well. my opinion: not everyone is that rich to pay full amount for everything, even at charity. Charity is when you can donate how much you can and want. Not to rob the people. There is nothing bad in my eyes that they have a sale.

They are earning more money for charity selling a few at 70% off than selling none at full price...

What a scam of an organisation. The MD must be well over 6 figure salary a year. What research? Everyone knows it's self curable without having to pay pharmaceutical companies money to kill you off.

Cure yourself? That is a dangerous lie, you need Noel Edmond's electro machine to cure cancer!

Self curable! I'm not normally rude but you are dumb! Please study the subject or actually know something before you spread ridiculous offensive lies about something so horrendous and life destroying!

All charity's are basically a scam .The are all run as a business . If you donate money or buy stuff about 10 % if your lucky will actually go on what you think it would . The rest goes on everyone's wages and other running costs .

I think if a charity has gotten so big that most of the money donated does not actually go on what you are donating to , it is no longer a charity. It is a business that makes a charitable contribution.

When I am feeling a little flush I usually buy a couple hundred quids worth of dog food and drop it off at a dogs home . Then I know some greedy **** is not taking most of it .Yes they will save some money , but I have done my bit and I know a dog somewhere is eating 100 % of the food .

I would be wary that if you buy from their shop they will put you on the "list" so you get inundated with charity begging letters. The way these big charities are run as businesses will mean they will probably sell your details on , so you get even more spam from other charities too.

One of my work colleagues has had a similar experience with constant phone calls asking for donations after once donating by phone.

The whole "charity" system in this country needs more legislation to show where the donated money goes. Putting 90% of donations back into advertising and director salaries is not accectable to most people. But directors justify it by saying if the spend 1 million on advertising and get 1 million and 1 pound back in extra donations that is a good thing ( as they have gained an extra pound they would not have otherwise got )

​Damn, self curable? Shame I could've told my two grandads, cousin and my girlfriend's cousin before they popped off.

I am convinced about the selling on of details too. me, my wife and my sister all donated to this charity and were inundated by the same charities inside a few weeks. You have no idea how many charities are sitting on a surplus of cash, a few years ago guide dogs for the blind had millions in reserve. Then there was the tsunami appeal which raised over a billion worldwide, and supposedly so far has built 6 regular buildings (non hospital etc). As said above if you can give direct.

Shame my mum didn't know it was self curable
As she was riddled in pain not being able to walk before she passed away
If only we knew eh !!!

My tax breakdown for last year said I paid over £2,000 towards welfare, this I think is an ample charitable donation to the less unfortunate.
I'm am happy with my level of charitable donations at the moment.


I also question Cancer Charities, I don't want to be a mumbling mess in a nursing home, being pumped full of expensive pills to keep the dreaded cancer away.

​i wouldn't worry about it. None of your money will actually research cancer. It will go to wages, shop rents, TV adverts etc.
