Yes it's a charity & yes, she can give it to who she likes. Dosen't make it right though.
Yes, wives and girlfriends of some in prison did know the " bloody risks" to themselves, their children and the rest of their family if they told anyone. They will protect their children first, who are innocent and often trumatised when a parent goes to prison. Some families are both the victims of the crimes and families impovorished by their spouses going to jail... Someone who is in prison may have been a good provider but got done for white collar crime such as fraud, the family then fall on hard times.
