Opinion: From our Readers - Small charities should be included in research

I read with interest the spread on your new Charity Brand Index (Features, 6 November).

But the basis of your research seems flawed to me, because the public was only asked about charities that enjoy a larger-than-average annual voluntary income. Of course those charities will enjoy greater awareness; they probably have the luxury of marketing budgets!

I'm also surprised to see institutions such as the British Museum included in the list - that's stretching the status of charities, isn't it? Visitor attractions are in receipt of millions of pounds of taxpayers' money and they focus on getting foot traffic into their exhibitions; clearly, they will be putting a lot of resources into awareness.

It would be good to see small and medium-sized charities being considered for major research projects in the future. Just because we are small doesn't mean we can't punch above our weight.
