What comes to mind when you think of charity? For me, the word used to conjure up images of parents selling cakes to raise money for their local school, or people running a race to raise money and awareness for a cause close to their heart. This all changed in 2011 when I was invited by a charity to take part in an event that would form part of their consultation with the government

Where is this all going?

Save the Children have caused quite a stir this week after deciding to award former Prime Minister, Tony Blair, with a “Global Legacy” award. An online campaign has been started, demanding that they revoke the award, stating that it is inappropriate because of the role he played in the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
It was also raised that the Chief Executive of Save the Children,Justin Forsyth, used to be a special adviser [SPAD] to both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Although it appears to be unlikely that he had any say in the decision to give his former boss the award, his charity has been criticised in the past for its support of Oxfam in their highly politicised campaign against the government.
