Down’s Syndrome Association hit by credit crunch

Posted in Charities by Matt at WelcometoIllinois on October 4, 2008

Sky News reports the unfortunate news that current economic conditions are having an impact on charitable giving in the UK.

It is a sad fact of life that charities are hit worst when the need it most, and it is particularly unfortunate to see the Down’s Syndrome Association finish its financial year with a £212,000 ($375,000) deficit, spending restrictions and a recruitment freeze.

It may not make much of an impact on that deficit but I have been prompted to do my bit by becoming a member. Although we’ve barely engaged with the DSA I think we’ve probably already got our money’s worth.
