Shane Warne Foundation closes amid consumer affairs audit

THE Shane Warne Foundation announced it was closing its doors yesterday amid a consumer affairs investigation.

In a statement, the charity said speculation about its financial management was "unwarranted" and it had distributed $3.67 million to kids in need.

The foundation has faced claims of poor accounting and that much of the money raised is used for "administration".

A Consumer Affairs Victoria report is due by February 29.
