Recently we asked why treasure from a “charity” detecting rally wasn’t benefitting the charity. Now the finder, Jason, says he will be donating a percentage to them “of course”! We like that, (even though he won’t say what percentage) and we particularly like that he said “of course“: it shows he knows it’s something all charity rally attendees ought to do as fairness dictates that:

If a rally is marketed as “for charity” the charity should benefit from the finds.

It means those wanting a reward for finding treasure at a “charity rally” ought always to feel honour bound to also tell The Treasury how much of it they’d like sent direct to the charity. Let’s call it Jason’s Rule. It could be worth millions to the charity sector so if you know a charity that has lent its name to a rally (there are hundreds) do tell them about it. They could be making FAR more!
