YWCA drops the word Christian from its name

The YWCA is the latest in a series of charities that have tried to update their image, sometimes in the hope of getting more money from the Government.

Well done for them, Platform 51 does sound a bit like a software company. I can't understand how other groups can call themselves a charity if their main goal is promoting their religion above helping people.
