article imageChannel 4 stops Help for Heroes charity donations

By Richard Milnes     May 28, 2013 in World
In a move highlighting Channel 4’s politically correct, left wing bias, it has taken steps to ensure that the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity does not accept any donations from an organisation which is against militant Islam.
Unpatriotic Channel 4 stops donations to ‘Help for Heroes’ charity
Channel 4 reports that it put pressure on the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity, which caved in and has refused to accept any donations from a planned 17-mile sponsored walk from Westminster to Woolwich by EDL Leader Tommy Robinson. Correspondent Sarah Smith reports that they spoke to Help for Heroes after one of their viewers spotted Tommy Robinson’s web sponsorship page.
Sponsorship Page
The sponsorship page on the ‘Just Giving’ website has now been cancelled.
ITV News reports that Help For Heroes said in a statement “This evening, working with the assistance of JustGiving, we closed down a fundraising account which we believe the English Defence League intended to use to donate money to H4H.” They continue “We acted swiftly to achieve this, and would like to make it clear that we will not accept donations from organisations who attempt to use Help for Heroes to promote their own political agenda.”
About Sarah Smith
Sarah’s politically correct, left wing bias may be explained by the fact that she is one of the daughters of the late John Smith, former leader of the UK’s Labour Party.
Digital Journal has been unable to confirm whether she is a current member of the NUJ.
Help for Heroes charity
A recent statement appearing on the Help for Heroes website says:
There has been an extraordinary public reaction to the brutal murder of Drummer Lee Rigby last week. Hundreds of thousands of people, revolted by this dreadful crime carried out in full view of other innocents, have united to show that they will not be intimidated.
It goes onto say:
H4H has been the unexpected focus of this national outpouring of support and our team has rallied to man the phones, take the orders and re-establish our website. Our small team has responded amazingly and many others have helped us to react; thank you so much for your help.
