  1. That would certainly have put the Guides in a difficult position.  That's more than a narrow mind (the former donor), it's nasty; to immediately jump to that thought.  Also I would have thought that once donated, on the terms it was donated, it was the Guides' money free and clear.  Just as if I give money to anyone on the street - don't often do that but now and then - I don't specify "oh, don't spend this on booze" because if I give it to them, it's theirs.
