Almost a third of charity workers 'don't give to good causes'

The figure comes from a survey of more than 1,900 voluntary sector workers

Almost a third of UK charity workers do not donate money to charity, according to a new research.

Research undertaken by the discount website VoucherCodesPro.co.uk with a sample of 1,982 people on the its database who said they worked in the charity sector found that 31 per cent of respondents said they did not donate to any charity.

Researchers found that 32 per cent of respondents said they gave between £6 and £10 per month to charity.

Another 17 per cent give between £1 and £5, 12 per cent gave more than £30 a month, and 6 per cent gave £11 to £20 a month to charity, the survey found.

Of those that said they did donate to charity, 49 per cent of respondents said they did not give money to the charity they worked for.

Despite the responses, 82 per cent of charity workers answering the survey said they considered themselves a charitable person.

Of those who said they did not donate to charity, 62 per cent said they did not have the money to do so, while 7 per cent said they felt choosing a charity to donate to was difficult.

The remaining 31 per cent said they felt they did enough for charity already without having to donate money.
