Retailers selling charity Christmas cards are donating as little as 1.1 percent to good causes, with internet shops the worst offenders, according to a report by the Charities Advisory Trust.

The trust's 10th annual Scrooge report names and shames companies which are marketing their cards in the name of charity, but actually giving only a tiny percentage to the cause they say they support.
