Been thinking about running for a charity at London, and have found out recently that FLM charge the charities £250+ for each golden bond! No wonder the charities are asking people to pledge a large amount - technically the first £250 you raise will not be going to your chosen charity at all. Why do FLM consider it necessary to charge so much? surely the charities could have their own "ballot system" instead of forking out so much. I appreciate that some charities will consider that its a good investment for the money that they get back, but I still think FLM are charging an extortionate amount. What do you think?
