THE cancer charity set up in memory of entertainer Roy Castle has cash problems.
The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has had to sell its Liverpool headquarters for a reported £3m to the city's university.
The charity is now renting back space in the buildings.
Many of the problems are believed to stem from the running costs of the Foundation's 15 charity shops, but also because of poor returns from stock market investments.
Accounts for the charity show a loss of £377,000 in the last financial year, on top of previous losses of £908,000 and £943,000.
But chief executive Mike Unger said the situation had now been stabilised.
A series of measures had been put in place and he was hopeful the charity would hit its targets this year.
The Foundation was set up after Castle, the Scholes-born entertainer, raised millions of pounds to fund research shortly before his death from cancer.
