That's good as I am now highly suspicious of donating monies to a "central" fund to be spent/wasted/invested by persons unknown. At least if/when it stays local, people can see how their money is being used.
My main point is that people should demand that Govt. steps up to the plate, acts like a proper Govt. and funds organisations that are necessary or essential for the citizens of this republic. It's a disgrace that citizens of this state should be begging/taxing other hard-pressed citizens, while the Govt. continues wasting our taxes on consultancy fees, quangos, excessive wages, pensions etc etc.
