Olive Cooke: PM statement

David Cameron made a statement on the death of Olive Cooke.

Prime Minister David Cameron said:

Olive Cooke was an incredible woman who worked tirelessly for the charities she supported and I was pleased to recognise her with a Point of Light award in November for being Britain’s longest serving poppy seller.

I know there is a code that is meant to protect people from feeling pressured by charities and I hope the Fundraising Standards Board will look at whether any more could have been done to prevent this.
