Helping to launch free charity ISP Care4free, Anthea said: “charities should utilise the opportunities that the Internet brings as much as possible. I think it would be a big mistake if they don’t.”Ms Turner told magazine What’s Online: “the [Care4free] site is excellent. It is obviously excellent for the charities involved – I really think it’s the way forward. The fact that for the charities it’s free is brilliant – they don’t have to pay anything to be on it.” Unfortunately she added “when people normally give money to charity quite a big percentage goes on administration.”Talking of her own Internet experience Ms Turner said that she hadn’t yet tried Internet shopping, and hasn’t been able to use the Internet recently at home as “there isn’t an ISDN line in there.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 19 December 1999 | News Anthea Turner encourages charities online About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
