Third Sector Podcast: The Captain Tom Foundation

Emily and Russell explore the statutory enquiry into the Captain Tom Foundation

This week, editor Emily Burt and senior reporter Russell Hargrave unpack the story of the Captain Tom Foundation, from record-breaking fundraising challenge to the launch of a statutory enquiry by the Charity Commission.

They talk through the finer points of the governance responsibilities and charity laws that may apply to the commission’s enquiry, and reflect on other key moments in the Captain Tom story. For a picture of the life-sized Captain Tom balloon model discussed in this episode, click here.

And in this week’s Good News Bulletin, it’s the story of a charity worker who was heralded a hero after he alerted his neighbours to a fire in their tower block.
