Cancer charity trustees jailed for theft

Two trustees of a children’s cancer charity have been jailed for theft. Deborah Munro and Ian Dyke ran a street-collecting operation in a business which generated a turnover of more than £250,000 a year. However, less than £5,000 in one year was donated to children’s cancer relief.
