The head of Australia's Salvation Army is defending the organization after his daughter was given donated Paul McCartney concert tickets that were supposed to be for homeless people.
"At the last minute, two tickets were returned and [a manager] made the decision to give them to my daughter [Ash Nottle]. It had absolutely had nothing to do with me," he told 3AW. "The manager did the ring-around of other homeless people and volunteer staff and wasn't able to move them because it was so late."
He said his daughter accepted the tickets under the premise that she would be attending to "look out for" the five homeless people at the concert. Ash Nottle attended the concert with her partner.
"We are not Ticketmaster, we are not concert promoters, we don't do that stuff and we get it wrong sometimes, you know." Nottle added that the situation could have been handled better and the organization would "absolutely learn from this."
