ITV's ill-gotten gains are charities' gain

ITV is to donate a large chunk of the illicit proceeds it received from phone-in scams to four forces' charities. Help for Heroes, Combat Stress, SSAFA and the Royal British Legion are each set to receive £616,000.
The receipt of this money will bring the Help for Heroes campaign very close to its target of £6million which is to be spent on providing a new pool and gym at the tri-service Headley Court Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre .
Sometimes something good comes from something bad.
