Lady Meyer takes a pay cheque from the City Bridge Trust
Featured in The Telegraph in 2011 due to the curious way it allocated its income, the charity founded by the “Chanel-clad” wife of the former British ambassador to Washington, Lady Meyer, is back in the news after receiving a grant of £60,000 from the City Bridge Trust. Naturally, she, herself, is set to receive 10% of this personally.
Of it, Rachel Mortell, the media officer for the City of London Corporation lackadasically commented:
“The current grant is towards PACT’s ground-breaking child rescue project… [and] is contributing towards the establishment of an online child abduction hub, designed for parents and professionals alike. £10,000 will contribute towards the salary of the CEO [Lady Meyer], which we feel is a modest sum”.
Lady Meyer and her husband, it should be noted, purchased an expensive townhouse adjoining a kebab shop in Lincoln Street, Chelsea for £2,650,000 in April 2013. She has spent the ensuing months extensively renovating it at, no doubt, great cost.
Morally and ethically, we again ask: “Does this already wealthy woman really need to take yet another pay cheque from a charity?”
