CRUK clarify reports of budget slashes

Tania Mason of Professional Fundraising reports that CRUK, one of the top UK fundraising charities, is expecting a decline due to the economic climate.

Harpal Kumar says "The fall in the property market is having a direct impact on our legacy income stream and people may also need to consider their level of personal giving. " He says they are planning on a decline of perhaps 4 or 5 per cent this year. With such huge amounts of money that comes into CRUK from legacies this seems perfectly reasonable.

There is no comment there as to what they will be doing to fundraising expenditure.
