A CHARITY face shutdown over claims they paid speaker Cherie Blair more from a fund-raising dinner than went to good causes.

The Prime Minister's wife spoke at a Melbourne dinner in aid of the Children's Cancer Institute Australia in February.

But pounds 6680 from the dinner went to help the charity, while pounds 74,396 was spent on expenses. There is no suggestion Cherie knew of the split.

Charity regulators have given CCAI three days to explain themselves
