If there’s one thing that brings out the sadface in local newspapers, it’s a charity wronged.
In this case, it’s angry sailors getting the wrong message from the local pencil-necked geeks on the council.

The only problem is that the pencil-necked geeks at the council say they never told him they wanted a fee for collecting for charity, never have done, never will.
So that’s that sorted.
