Third Sector Podcast: The Restore Trust, Oxfam and the Captain Tom 100

This week's episode looks at the latest charity news

In this edition, senior features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt discuss what's been going on in the world of charities. 

This includes the story about the National Trust saying it is "open to debate'" after a new pressure group attracted thousands of members in an attempt to force the charity to “regain the nation’s trust”. 

In the same week, an organisation set up to build a museum dedicated to Britain leaving the European Union was granted charitable status and launched a £1m fundraising drive. 

Rebecca and Emily also discuss fresh allegations about harassment and inappropriate behaviour at Oxfam. (This episode was recorded before The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office announced it would suspend Oxfam's right to apply for new government funding.)

And they look at the new fundraising event launched by London Marathon organisers and the family of the late Captain Sir Tom Moore.

And in this week's coronavirus care package, a garage in Kidderminster is turning the air blue for charity.
