Sweet Charity.

And perhaps the Scottish Charity Regulator should be reminded what "charity" actually means ... and begins at home?

"THE WATCHDOG responsible for ensuring charities do not rip off the public used nearly £13,000 of taxpayers' money on quad biking and archery lessons for staff. The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) also billed the public for going on a "mini treasure hunt" ... The global recession has forced private companies to go bust and public sector organisations to make efficiency savings. However, the hard financial times have not prevented OSCR, which had a budget last year of £3.6 million, from finding £12,930 for a "team building" exercise in Methven, Fife."
