Will the Charity gain?   How many Charities are franchised, more than we realise.  We've had discussions with Age Concern recently ..... unless money is paid into a particular shop they don't get it.  If it goes to HQ then it goes they know not where.  Yet.

They have to almost beg to get support from HQ.  It was the same with Cats Protection: the branch that I worked for got ?250.00 per year, had to beg for monies to maintain kennels, buy litter trays and food ........ otherwise they had to be self funding  :'(.  What people don't realise is that any can shakers have to in many cases, give up the donations to HQ.

I think it was the Girl Guides, or what ever they are called now.  Don't think that's a franchise.

It will go to HQ though? Unless it's a Group local to her so that she can hand over a cheque?  A lot of money for a 'little black dress'  ::).  Still inappropriate work wear!

I was right then!  It IS just a cheapo dress .... ?35 from ASOS.

We all know that buyers can retract bids on Ebay and I bet it raises nowhere near ?13,000.

I think she deliberately wore the dress knowing the media coverage it would generate. Presumably she wants to raise her profile for some reason?

Highly unprofessional.

Totally agree. Sad thing is that she got publicity, let's hope everyone sees through the stunt.

She popped up in a old episode of Law and Order:UK the other night. I did chuckle to myself.

I thought it was a bit odd until I read that she was an actress and it all made sense. ;D

I hope the money goes locally - I am not impressed with the head office these days as they burn money and they get enough off the local troops anyway.
