cclogo.pngGlenda is urging residents of Hampstead and Kilburn to give safety to charities this Christmas by remembering the 'Safe Xmas' acronym developed by the Charity Commission, the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales, and the Fundraising Standards Board, the self-regulatory body for the UK fundraising.

 

The TOP TIP is to search for a charity's name, registration number & landline on fundraising materials before you give here.

 

#SafeXmas stands for:

 

S   Search for a charity's name, registration number and landline on fundraising materials

A   Ask to see a collector's ID badge and don't be afraid to ask questions

  Find the FRSB tick logo, showing that the charity's fundraising is regulated

E   Ensure the collection device is sealed

 

X   Xtra information about charities can be found at www.gov.uk/charity-commission

M  Make sure clothing collection bags are clearly branded with a charity's details

A  Always check email and web links are genuine before donating

S Still unsure? Contact your favourite charity direct and donate

 

Donate to Charity Safely this Year

Glenda_Jackson_Reduced.jpgWe were disappointed by George Osbourne’s Autumn Statement yesterday which failed, yet again, to address the cost of living crisis. Furthermore, the Government’s broken promise to cut the deficit before the next election means that the Chancellor has had to borrow an extra £219 billion more than he planned in this parliament. Borrowing has been revised up by £12.5 billion this year and next, and economic Growth is set to slow next and the year after.

Labour’s economic plan will raise the minimum wage, expand free childcare for working parents, get more homes built and cut business rates for small firms. Labour will also abolish the bedroom tax, and raise an extra £2.5billion a year for the NHS to deliver 20,000 more nurses and 8,000 more GPs – a commitment that the Tories refuse to match.

With the OBR warning that public spending is heading to an 80-year low, and the prospect of more merciless cuts to balance the books, the Government doesn’t seem to have taken into consideration just how important the economy is and will be at the next election.
