©Whitehead Monckton How can mediation help charities? British Diabetic Association v Diabetic Society Ltd  “Charities solicit donations from the public…in the expectation that donations will be well spent on furtherance of the charity’s purposes. Even for a lawyer it is a difficult feat to recognise this very expensive litigation as helping the diabetics whose subscriptions and gifts will be the ultimate source for payment of the lawyers’ bills. I very much hope that both sides will do their utmost to see that this sort of squabbling and sniping now ceases, because it lowers the parties, and indeed charity generally, in the eyes of the general public on which charity depends for support.” Walker J 5
©Whitehead Monckton How can mediation help charities? (cont’d) Muman v Nagasena  “In this case very substantial sums of money have been spent on litigation without achieving a resolution. The spending of money on this kind of litigation does not promote the religious purposes of this charity. It is time for mediation. No more money should be spent from the assets of this charity until…all efforts have been made to secure a mediation of this dispute..”. Mummery LJ 6
