    Channel 4 Dispatches last Monday, How to stop your nuisance calls didn't, in fact, give you any good advice on how to do that.

    F2F fundraising the day after the #Dispatches episode regarding telephone fundraising. Had the show used as an excuse already. Brilliant.

    It looks like the Institute of fundraising are being treated as mugs by private fundraisers and the charities don't have a clue. #dispatches
