For once the Western Mail has got the tone exactly right. That the Children's Society is seeking to raise money in Wales just two and a half years after pulling out of all its projects here, and leaving staff and children in the lurch, is a damned cheek. I recall the way that the Welsh Assembly Government and Assembly Members had to work to find replacement funding and put adequate long term arrangements in place to guarantee the independent future of these projects. If you want to support Welsh children then visit this site. The Church of England Children's Society showed what it thought of Wales in 2002, it should now confine its attentions and its fundraising efforts to England and stop trying to undermine our alternative.
