"The NSPCC is facing huge challenges in the current economic climate. Children are more vulnerable at times of economic downturn and demand for the NSPCC's services has increased."Well, that's what the blurb from one of the Little Ps's (the girl) school said anyway.
They're struggling along on their £157m income, it would seem. So they sent one of their 2,555 staff (paid a collective £78m pa) to address the school and personally hand out sponsorship forms in these austere times.
"I appreciate that there will be other pressures on your household budget right now, but I truly hope you can find that little extra help for this special cause."On top of the £21m they already receive from statutory bodies via our taxes, that is.
Still, with every recession comes opportunity, eh?
