Mr Patrick Lethaby

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pink Paper

Complaint:

Mr Patrick Lethaby of Wandsworth Oasis Trading Co Ltd complained that an article reporting that the company only donated a tiny proportion of its income to good causes, and was facing calls for an investigation by the Charity Commission, had contained a number of inaccuracies and misleading statements.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a further article, highlighting that Wandsworth Oasis had been cleared by the Charity Commission, and detailing that, at Christmas, it had donated 46,383 to causes including Mildmay Hospice, the gay-run charity Food Chain and the Salvation Army.

Report: 78
