There has been a lot of bad press for a while where some charities arn't so open with where donations they recieve go. Sadly some charities spend the majority of their funds on staff wages.
We at Alpha-1 Awareness UK do not have any paid staff. ALL our Trustees and Board members are volunteers and all work for the charity for free and in their own time. The money raised from this shop as well as all other donations to our charity go towards creating booklets for children, teenagers and adults who have the condition as well as families, schools and doctors. It also funds our Information days and lunches that we hold for our members.
