Have Your Say: Cuts at top could help
I APPRECIATE Richard Nicholls of Age Cymru's concern that the increase in rent on charity shops is flawed (Post, Oct 1).
Recently the Daily Mail published a list of directors' 'salaries and subordinates in head office of many well-known charities which were extortionate, higher than the Prime Minister's.
This information had a detrimental effect on people's attitude towards charities and would have resulted in the loss of income of their own making.
The saying is "charity begins at home".
A solution could be that head offices transferred the difference of 80 per cent to 50 per cent reduction to their shops to avoid closure and job cuts as indicated by Mr Nicholls.
Many small businesses have resulted in closure due to high rates and would have appreciated an 80 per cent reduction.
