Charity Bag Collections – Identity

We have received a number of reports about donation bags being left out for collection by a charity and being pick up by other non-identified collectors.

Genuine charity collectors will always carry identity with them and will be happy to show it if challenged and very often use marked vehicles.  Anyone who leaves a bag out for collection is entitled to challenge a collector if they are in any way suspicious.

Unauthorised collection of Charity Bags, apart from depriving the charity of their income, is actually theft.
