JustGiving's PS25k profit over Grenfell.
Byline: ALAN SELBY
CHARITY fundraising site JustGiving earned PS25,000 in fees from a single appeal to help survivors of the Grenfell Tower inferno.
It took five per cent of the PS400,000 raised by a wellwisher, it has emerged.
Now MPs have criticised JustGiving and say it ought to waive the fee, which it takes from gift aid - a tax refund on each donation.
Meg Hillier, Public Accounts Committee chair, said: "This is a very high percentage fee and the cost of doing this is much less than PS25,000."
MP Mary Robinson said "The beneficiary of the gift aid reclaimed should be the relevant charity."
JustGiving said: "By leaving time-consuming, costly stuff to us, charities spend more time, energy and money on doing good."
