Amazing. This lady and her colleagues are earning fantastic salaries for the jobs that they are doing. She earns in excess of £40.000 pa, not counting the freebies and expenses perks, and, she has the gall to attend a stall in 'arlow , moan about the cold, and sticks out the begging bowl for a few quid more for an increase in their salaries. I used to donate to most of the charities, but ,since the salaries of the so called executives became public I wouldn't give a bean to any of them. Vote LABOUR at your PERIL.

Hi MickyB77. Thanks for your comment. I am so sorry that you feel the way that you do and would welcome meeting you to discuss your concerns. It is important that I point out that there are many charities and local groups in Harlow which do not have salaried staff and are run purely by volunteers, and Local Charities Day was a celebration of their work as much as those charities which, for diverse reasons, do have salaried staff posts of varying levels. I fear that local charities have fallen victim to the bad press and in some cases poor practice of larger organisations.
