Public donations to charity fell by 20% in real terms last year, with good causes receiving £1.7 billion less, according to a survey.

The survey for the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) found that the number of individuals giving to charity fell in 2011/12 and amounts donated also declined, from £11 to £10 a month.
