Hi @SimonInEdinburgh - back when Give As You Earn started I set up a monthly donation to Arthritis Research (my mum had rheumatoid arthritis) and continued to donate for many years.

Arthritis Research then decided to commission a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. My partner has worked at Chelsea so I knew how costly the gardens were. I had a correspondence with someone at the charity and in my opinion they couldn’t defend that expenditure. My (small) donation wasn’t intended for that purpose and I ceased to support them.

I’ll be interested to see what the Stroke Association says about this. Maybe someone else is funding it and they’re just putting their name/brand to it?
