A complaint about misleading fundraising: the R family
Mr and Mrs R’s son is a member of a local charitable sports club. The club asked Mr and Mrs R to raise £800 so they could send a team to a sporting event. But Mr and Mrs R thought this amount was more than they needed.
A charity was showing only the Gift Aid entry price to an event on their website, and not the Standard entry price. Mr N found this to be “misleading” because visitors would expect to pay the higher price.
