What’s £700,000 between friends?
However, this generous approach cannot accommodate some glaring errors I have found recently.
£10 million error
FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre): their accounts (due, I think, to a spreadsheet error) miscalculate by precisely £730,535. Bearing in mind that they spend just over £1 million per year, this amount is rather large.
However, it pales in comparison with the South England Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists. By consistently missing out a ‘1’, they understate their unrestricted funds by a prize-winning £10,000,000.
These errors do not directly reflect on the charities’ work. However, they are vexing to researchers, and must be more than a little concerning for donors
