I think you're being a little harsh there. Salmon isn't so expensive and presumeably it was for a lot of people.
Sack-cloth and ashes may look good in the short term, but don't really having sticking power in the long term. You said you were on for a tour? Was it a fund-raising or awareness raisng tour?
Most charities will regulalry spend money to raise sponsorship and funds - I don't think that's wrong. For some at some times it's even spend a ?1 of every ?2 raised to raise the next ?2. No spend - no apparent waste - less funds overall.
It may go against the ideology, but it's political and politics is the art of the possible - if ideology can fit in too, that's a bonus.
