Speakers at the fundraising summit hosted by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations sought to reassure charities that the development of the Fundraising Preference Service would take sector views into account.

The Crown Prosecution Service has decided not to seek a retrial in the fraud case of ShelterBox founder Tom Henderson after the original jury failed to reach a verdict.

MPs have expressed concern about plans to give the Charity Commission the power to issue statutory warnings to charities.

Alan Yentob, chair of the defunct charity Kids Company, has resigned from his job with the BBC because the media coverage of his role with the charity has become a "serious distraction".

The Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have pledged to give away 99 per cent of their shares in the social network company – worth about £30bn – to charity.

The governance structure of the Charity Commission means there is "a risk of a disconnect between the board and the rest of the organisation", according to a summary of a review of the commission’s governance framework and board effectiveness.
