One protester, Daniel Rose, said: “I’ve been a trustee and a volunteer at the charity for several years and the amount of issues we’ve found – it needs looking into urgently.

“We want the Charity Commission to open their eyes and see that an inquiry is needed to make certain all the evidence we’ve provided to them is looked at properly.”

The Charity Commission said it had received a number of complaints about Capricorn and that it had provided regulatory advice and guidance to the charity’s trustees in the form of an action plan.

“Our case remains open and we are continuing to monitor the charity and its compliance with the action plan,” a spokesperson said.

“We have met with the charity’s trustees and will be engaging further regarding the issues raised. As such we cannot comment further at this time.”
