Misleading claims on charity work in the media

This weekend, some newspapers ran a flawed report about Britain’s biggest charities spending less than 50% on good works. Here's a blog post explaining why this is misleading. 

"I'm so happy that my mum was able to come to my wedding"

Sadly just two weeks later, and 20 weeks before her grandson was born, she died of lung cancer. "After having a severe cough that wouldn’t go away, she was referred to a specialist who told us the devastating news that she had lung cancer. As mum wasn’t a smoker, lung cancer was the last thing we’d suspected.”
