Here's where your money goes:

CEO Justin Forsyth £139,950
COO Anabel Hoult £139,950
COO / CFO & Strategic Initiatives Rachel Parr £131,970
Global Programmes Director Fergus Drake £113,300
Fundraising Director Tanya Steele £112,200
Marketing & Comms Director Sue Allchurch £111,920
Policy & Advocacy Director Brendan Cox £106,029
CFO Peter Banks £102,000
HR Director Paul Cutler £100,980

Save the Children’s highly paid and very numerous HQ staff work in a swanky office for which they pay a staggering 6.5 million pounds a year lease. Do they really need their HQ in ultra expensive Central London? I suppose all those high earners have to get home to Islington. Their HQ costs more than all their other premises put together, including ALL their shops.

Nothing's sacred is it? Even charity is infested with parasitic go getters justifying their existence mainly through bribery to others of their ilk and wholeheartedly supported by the establishment. Where are all the people who have made a few quid and could also offer their skills for free? I give to charity and have done some volunteering and Im by no means wealthy, there are loads of charitable minded people around why not offer them the gig? Grrrrrrrr.

Yeah, I don't doubt that this lot aren't unique in the charity world.

They probably believe they're worth it, too.

In a vibrant, thriving, capitalist society such as ours charideeeee begins at home. These people probably have little darlings to feed, school fees to pay, gym memberships, regular dinner parties and modern art exhibitions to attend and so on and so forth. They too are deserving of a little compassion.

Just to play Devil's advocate, I'd imagine that's the going rate for people with the experience and expertise to make a difference.

I couldn't begin to justify paying £6.5m a year for the HQ though.

If they were not paid those salaries they would go abroad and work for foreign charities and all their valuable skills would be lost, just like Brenty and his banker chums.

As Iggy says people of that calibre could not be expected to work outside central London, FFS!

That's the trouble with you "oiks" you cannot see the bigger picture!

Last week StC held what was described as a "Glittering Illumination Gala" at New York's Plaza Hotel.

Why?

It is similar in a lot of charities. The aunt of one of my housemates at Uni was quite high up in a children's charity (NSPCC I think) and he said she was on around £100k pa. Her job was to bring in donations from large corporations by wining/ dining them. Nice job if you can get it!

At one point it was rumoured that 2p from every £1 donated to Oxfam? went to the actual cause- the rest went on administration costs.
