CRC defends salary top-ups from lottery funds

CRC defends salary top-ups from lottery funds

The Central Remedial Clinic has again moved to clarify how the salaries of some of its senior executives are paid.

In a statement, the CRC is stressing that any "top-ups" to wages come only from its lottery, and not from its Santa Bear Appeal, flag days, or any other fundraising activities.

The clinic has been under fire after it emerged last week that some of its senior executives were earning above the government approved salary cap.

In the statement the clinic says that charitable donations fund only 1.1% of the CRC wage bill, with over 98% of all public donations being used to fund the provision of services and capital investment.
