Charity Commission seeks £2.9M from Prize Promotions Limited

  1. On 2 October 2016, The Sunday Times newspaper reported that the Charity Commission wants £2.9M from Prize Promotions Limited, the Blackpool-based rip-off professional fundraiser (PPL; registered company number: 07829587). PPL was the official professional fundraiser for Afghan Heroes, the notorious failed military charity (registered charity number: 1132340).
  2. PPL is now in liquidation. But documents filed at Companies House show that the business is being pursued by the Charity Commission for £2.9M over its involvement with Afghan Heroes. I brought this fact to the attention of Andrew Gilligan at The Sunday Times.
  3. Gilligan‘s report (“Veterans miss out on charity millions as fundraiser keeps up to 80% of cash”) is available on the newspaper’s website, behind a paywall: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/veterans-miss-out-on-charity-millions-as-fundraiser-keeps-up-to-80-of-cash-wjhcjcqjb. Here too is a scanned copy of the page for those like me outside the paywall: the-sunday-times-2-october-2016.
