'Help' for Heroes

Yesterday it emerged 51 year old, Christopher Copeland defrauded the UK military charity, Help for Heroes.

This wasn’t a quick dip into a collection bin however, Copeland’s perfidy pilfered £300,000 from the charity, and if not for a suspicious volunteer, he would likely still be at it. 307 more words
